Adam Tambellini’s season and progression as a prospect

Adam Tambellini picked up 47 goals and 39 assists in 71 games this season in the WHL and to say that he “took a step forward is an understatement.” (HF)

Tambellini will play this coming season in Hartford with the Wolf Pack and his estimated timeline to join the Rangers is “probably 2017-18.” (Dobber Hockey Prospect Guide)

He is an offense first player whose defensive game has “improved greatly,” has natural hockey sense and a strong shot with a quick release. (Dobber Hockey Prospect Guide)

Tambellini needs to add strength to win board battles and should get the chance in Hartford to play Top Six minutes. (Dobber Hockey Prospect Guide)

Ryan Kennedy picked Tambellini as the Rangers prospect of the year, calling him “almost unstoppable” for Calgary. (THN)

Gordie Clark said at the draft that Tambellini had the season they were hoping he would have and that he was the go-to guy for Calgary. He said that this is a big summer for him and that he needs to add strength and the expectation is that he will gain that strength this summer. (NYR)


Finally a guy who can rip it on the powerplay
