Tambellini tops among BCHL skaters

The latest Central Scouting Bureau rankings find Surrey Eagle Adam Tambellini tops among BCHL players at No. 62

New Surrey Eagle Adam Tambellini is the top-listed BCHL skater in the latest Central Scouting Bureau rankings.

The CSB released its mid-term report Monday, highlighting the top North American prospects heading into the 2013 National Hockey League entry draft.

Tambellini, acquired by Surrey from the Vernon Vipers last week, checks in at No. 62. Powell River’s Luke Ripley is very close behind at No. 64. Those grades would put Tambellini and Ripley somewhere in the third or fourth rounds.

David Pope, a winger from the West Kelowna Warriors, is the next highest BCHLer at No. 104.

Chilliwack Chiefs defenceman Cooper Rush slides in at No. 132.

Prince George defenceman Kevin Guiltinan comes in at No. 141 followed by Victoria Grizzlies blueliner Nolan Jong at No. 150.

Vernon Vipers winger Dexter Dancs checks in at No. 154 and Merritt Centennials Dane Birks rounds out the BCHLers at No. 160.

On the goaltending side, two BCHL stoppers are listed among the top 35 draft-eligible prospects.

Salmon Arm netminder Adam Clark is ranked No. 32 and Penticton’s Chad Katunar is one spot behind.

The 2013 NHL entry draft takes place June 30 at the home of the New Jersey Devils, the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.

Nine Chilliwack Chiefs have been selected in NHL entry drafts. The most recent was Matt Butcher, who was picked by the Vancouver Canucks in 2005.
