Flames sign defenceman Brady Lamb
CALGARY, AB -- The Calgary Flames announced today they have signed defenceman Brady Lamb from the University of Minnesota-Duluth to a one year, two-way contract.
“Brady is a physical defenceman who eliminates time and space down low in the defensive zone and finishes his checks,” stated Flames general manager Jay Feaster. “He has good vision, a hard shot from the point that he gets through traffic, makes quick decisions with the puck, and makes a good first pass. He has consistently demonstrated strong leadership abilities, and he is a hard-nosed competitor. His work ethic and the way in which he competes have been his calling card throughout his career. We are pleased to welcome him to our organization.”
Lamb, a native of Calgary, Alberta, just finished his senior year at the University of Minnesota-Duluth (WCHA). He scored nine goals and added 22 assists for 31 points and 51 penalty minutes in 41 games this season for the Bulldogs which was the highest offensive output from their blue line. Minnesota-Duluth recently concluded their season after making it to the NCAA elite eight and dropping a 4-0 decision to the #1 seed Boston College with fellow Flames prospects Bill Arnold and John Gaudreau.
Contract Term: One year/two-way contract with an AAV of $925,000.
