from Kirk Penton of the Winnipeg Sun,
Each week a Sun staffer gets to know a sports figure a little better in Up Close. This week Kirk Penton chats with the newest member of the Manitoba Moose, forward Jeff Tambellini.
SUN: Are family dinners awkward when you’re a free agent and your dad’s at the table?
JT: Never. I’d never sign with him. It’s just a bad road to go down. I want no piece of that.
SUN: What is it like having your dad as an NHL GM?
JT: It’s something I only know, so it’s just kind of what we have. I play, he picks the teams.
SUN: Seriously, there’s no way you’d ever sign with him?
JT: No, not a chance.
SUN: You’re being dead honest?
JT: Oh, I’m dead serious.
