According to the Calgary Hitmen website on Wednesday, the Calgary Hitmen acquired forward Adam Tambellini from the Portland Winterhawks for the Hitmen's first round pick in the 2014 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft.

In 16 games with the University of North Dakota in 2013-14, Tambellini notched two goals and two assists for four points. The 19 year-old has also played with the Sherwood Park Crusaders of the Alberta Junior Hockey League and the Vernon Vipers and Surrey Eagles of the British Columbia Hockey League.

Tambellini, a center from Port Moody, British Columbia, who was drafted by the New York Rangers in the 2013 National Hockey League Entry Draft, has significant blood lines. His father Steve has played in the NHL (from 1978-1988) and was the general manager of the Edmonton Oilers from 2008-2013 and his brother Jeff has also played in the NHL from 2005-2011, most recently with the Vancouver Canucks.
