Ex-BCHL star returns to junior hockey

Former BCHL star Adam Tambellini is back in junior hockey.

The ex-Vernon Viper and Surrey Eagle walked away from the University of North Dakota Fighting Sioux this week, joining the Western Hockey League’s Calgary Hitmen.

The Hitmen had acquired Tambellini’s rights previously from the Portland Winterhawks, in return for a 2014 first round bantam draft pick.

Tambellini had an amazing first game, picking up one goal and three assists Wednesday night in a 6-4 win over Saskatoon.
