1. Is a Two-way defenseman who has an intriguing combination of speed, strength, and skill from the backend 
2. A powerful skater who can contribute in all three zones; moves the puck up quickly and effectively whether its skating the puck out or making a quick breakout pass
3. He is adaptable and versatile; capable of leading a rush from the back end or identifying when to join the rush as an extra attacker

Areas for improvement

  1. Defensive zone positioning could be improved, as he can be caught out of position at times
  2. Needs to improve on his offensive zone play if he wants to quarterback the powerplay in the NHL

Scouting Report:

Playing as a 16-year-old for the Winnipeg ICE, Carson Lambos was already averaging over 22 minutes per game. He was relied upon to defend opposing teams’ top players and never backs down from the challenge. Lambos is the ideal size for an NHL defenseman and has no glaring weakness; he is a powerful skater who can contribute in all three zones and is very good at jumping into the play to create odd-man situations. Carson has a big shot from the blue line, but he often prefers to get in goal with a hard wrist shot that is deflectable. Last season with the Winnipeg ICE, Lambos took on the role of being a number 1 defenseman and continued to show progress both as a shutdown defenseman and at the same time adding to his offensive game as well. Because of the other top defenseman in the 2021 Draft, Lambos doesn’t get as much buzz, but he can be a top pair two-way defenseman in the NHL. Mock drafts have Lambos being drafted anywhere from 9th overall-17th overall, so it is a possibility he falls out of the top 10.


A potential minute-eating two-way defender with a rare blend of size, speed, and skill
