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.
He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
