Final Thoughts

Lambos is an interesting draft prospect. Watching his film, nothing in particular really stands out about his game, but he has a knack for a simple wrist shot that seems to find the back of the net. While waiting for WHL play to begin, he was loaned to JYP U20 of the U20 SM-Sarja, tallying two goals and nine assists in 13 games.

With the Winnipeg Ice last season, Lambos racked up eight goals and 32 points in 57 games, leading all rookie defensemen in the WHL.

He was an asset on the Ice’s powerplay unit in 2019-20, collecting two goals and eight assists on the man advantage. Lambos can skate well, but again, it’s nothing to write home about. He can lead rushes up-ice and displays crisp passing abilities.

Next. Way-too-early mock draft has team taking Carson Lambos. dark

Looking at his pro comparison, if the Kings end up taking Lambos in the first round — which they would probably be reaching for him with the seventh- or eighth-overall pick based on standings — he looks like he brings a little more offensively than Victor Mete.
