Lampman, 26, skated in nine games with Amur Khabarovsk in Russia last season, registering four penalty minutes. The 6-1, 205-pound defenseman has played in 10 National Hockey League games, all with the New York Rangers, recording two penalty minutes.
The Rochester, Minnesota native was originally drafted by the Rangers in the fourth round, 113th overall in the 2001 Entry Draft.
I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.'
