Stick-tap to friend of the blog Vic Carneiro for bringing this to our attention, as Rangers 2013 third-round pick Adam Tambellini is leaving North Dakota to head to the Calgary Hitmen of the WHL. Chris Dilks of SBN College Hockey has the initial scoop, stating that Tambellini’s size has been an issue in the NCAA, and he will have a greater opportunity to grow in the WHL. In 16 games, the 168-lb Tambellini had a line of 2-2-4 and 31 PIMs with UND. The move is curious to say the least. In the NCAA, Tambellini would have had another three seasons of eligibility. In the WHL, Tambellini has the remainder of this season and one more year before he’s a WHL overage player. He will also be a 19-year-old skater playing in a league where 19 years old is on the veteran side of the spectrum. Tweet
