He was also GM for Canada at the 2003 and 2005 IIHF World Championships, winning gold in 2003 (Finland) and silver in 2005 (Austria).

Selected by the New York Islanders in the first round (No. 15) of the 1978 NHL Entry Draft, Tambellini played 553 career NHL games, collecting 160 goals, 150 assists and 105 penalty minutes. He was a member of the Islanders' Stanley Cup-winning squad in 1980.

Quote of the Day

I was going nuts and I saw [Subban], he was going crazy, and the ref had no idea where to go. [Subban] was skating to me, and I was skating to him and the ref was right in between us and I don't know, I kind of hit him pretty hard, I thought, but those were some emotions and I'm pretty sure he understands that.
