Rangers sign Adam Tambellini to entry-level deal

March 10, 2015, by

The New York Rangers have signed 2013 third round pick Adam Tambellini to a three-year entry-level contract. Tambellini, currently with the Calgary Hitmen of the WHL, has a line of 45-34-79 in 65 games this season as an overager. With Anthony Duclair now in Arizona, Tambellini is one of the better forward prospects in the system, with a good blend of size and skill.

Tambellini left the University of North Dakota halfway through last season to join the Hitmen. In the NCAA, Tambellini had a line of 2-2-4 in 16 games. In the 31 games with Calgary that season, he had a line of 17-22-39.

Tambellini will join the Hartford Wolf Pack next season, where he will likely need at least a year (probably more) before hopefully pushing for a spot on the NHL roster.

    Excellent prospect with really, really good hands which were evident in prospect camp. I recall one very impressive goal there in a sacrimmage which had the WOW factor.

    The kid is tall, and will fill into his body. This is impressive because of the skill set, and size combined, hopefully in the Kevin Hayes mold. Hay, it’s an entry level contract, so it really isn’t a major cost to the organization. Hope he pans out though!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
