July 2022 – Lamb is set to begin his NCAA career this season for his hometown Minnesota Golden Gophers.  The 18-year-old right wing completed his stint in the USHL for the Green Bay Gamblers, appearing in 10 games during the 2020-2021 season, and 62 more during the 2021-2022 season, where he posted 19 goals and 22 assists for 42 points. Lamb, who will turn 19 later this summer, will be lacing up the skates with a talent-laden Minnesota squad, featuring 2022 third overall pick Logan Cooley, as well as a host of other NHL draftees. It will be interesting to see how Lamb fares at the collegiate level, after posting strong numbers for his High School and USHL teams over the past few seasons.  One thing is for certain, he can definitely lean on some of his fellow draftees and upper-classmen Minnesota teammates to help him grow and mature as a hockey player starting this Fall.  Brendan Ferry

August 2021 – The Rangers went to the Minnesota High School circuit with their 104th selection of the 2021 NHL draft. In Brody Lamb, the Rangers secure the type of player who possesses the offensive upside of a middle-six forward, but also potentially the ability to play up and down the lineup, supporting top-notch players, and elevating grinders alike. His ability to dominate the possession game and drive offense of every kind at the USHS level was impressive, however, a substantial gap exists from where he is and where he needs to be in order to succeed at the NHL level. He’ll continue to develop in the USHL and eventually at the University of Minnesota. Brayden Olafson
