REPORT: PELICANS @ HIFK U20, JANUARY 9, 2019
The 15-year-old forward showed a lot of promise on Pelicans U20 third line in a 4-2 win over HIFK. Lambert scored the 3-1 goal goal in the third period with a high-velocity wrist shot. He’s a fluid skater with good mobility and a quick first step – the puck doesn’t slow him down. Lambert’s passing was crisp and precise, he was able to take his time with the puck and find open teammates without rushing plays. He displayed quick hands and the ability to create space for himself and others in the offensive zone. He also used his stick well defensively. Lambert won’t be eligible for the NHL Draft until 2022 but he looks like an exciting prospect with plenty of potential.
