Lampman attended the University of Nebraska-Omaha during the 2001-02 season, after playing three years in the USHL with Rochester and Omaha. However, after not playing much in his freshman year, Lampman decided to make a switch. He made the move to the Western Hockey League to play with the Kamloops Blazers. Only a quarter into the 2002-03 WHL season, Lampman inked a contract with the Rangers and played out the rest of the year with the Hartford Wolf Pack of the AHL. The 2003-04 season is currently Lampman’s sophomore effort in the AHL and he’s performed well enough to earn a cup of coffee with the Rangers to end the season.
Lampman is a solid defenseman with excellent leadership qualities. He is a great skater, which helps him play his excellent defensive game. Primarily a stay at home defenseman, Lampman does possess decent skills at the other end of the ice. He has a very hard shot from the point that he controls very well and he is very adept at making the outlet pass. One of those players that will never be seen as an all-star, but he will be extremely valuable to the team.
While he isn’t a dazzling player, nor an overly physical player, Lampman gets the job done.
