2009-10: Brady Lamb established himself as an offensive and physical presence on the blue line for Minnesota-Duluth as a sophomore after skating in 21 games as a freshman the previous season. Lamb led all Bulldogs defensemen in scoring with 11 goals and 13 assists and was minus-five with 55 penalty minutes; skating in all 40 games. Minnesota-Duluth finished fifth in the WCHA and reached the WHCA Final Five quarterfinal.
2010-11: Lamb skated in 37 of 42 games for NCAA champion Minnesota-Duluth as a junior – missing five games in February after suffering an injury against Saint Cloud State. He was back for the final regular season series of the year and played in all seven games in the WCHA and NCAA tournaments. Lamb had assists on all three goals in the Bulldogs' 3-2 overtime win over Michigan in the Frozen Four final. He finished the season with 1 goal and 9 assists and was plus-five with 42 penalty minutes.
2011-12: Lamb signed a one-year contract with the Flames in March 2012 following his senior year at Minnesota-Duluth. He appeared in one game with Calgary's AHL affiliate Abbotsford and was plus-two with 2 penalty minutes. He did not appear in any AHL playoff games. As the lone senior on UM-D's defense corps, Lamb skated in all 41 games for the Bulldogs, frequently playing with junior Wade Bergman on UM-D's top pairing. Lamb led Bulldogs defensemen in scoring (31 points) and shared the lead in penalty minutes (51) with junior Drew Olson (Columbus). He scored 9 goals with a career-high 22 assists and was plus-nine. The defending national champion Bulldogs finished second in the WCHA, lost to Denver in double overtime in the WCHA semifinals and fell to eventual national champion Boston College in the NCAA Northeast Regional Final.
Lamb has good vision, makes quick decisions with the puck, and a good first pass up ice. He has consistently demonstrated strong leadership skills, character and is a hard-nosed competitor. The big physical defender has a solid work ethic and competes hard every shift. The NCAA graduate has offensive upside and a hard shot from the point that he gets through traffic. The defenseman needs to improve his reverse pivots and skating speed to play at the NHL level.
Lamb will play his first pro season at the AHL level with the Heat but will need to adjust to the size and speed of the game. He needs to play well when given the opportunities in the start line-up as there are many capable defensemen in Abbotsford this season.
