Lambos is an agile skater who won’t blow the doors off with high-end speed but can flip toes with his ability to work off his edges and exploit holes with quick acceleration. He can make quick one touch plays on regular occurrences and hit his mark on passes through motion by working that extra angle. He’s an all-situations player who has all the tools to do most jobs efficiently but has somewhat plateaued physically compared to 2019-20 and taken no specific steps forward as far as skill goes. He’s not an elite-level skater when it comes to speed or quickness but he really doesn’t struggle technically. He’s got good use of his edges to carve or pivot under pressure and great stride recovery and extension which allows him some room in a race if he has positional advantages. As far as tools goes, a lot of what he is able to accomplish is due to awareness. He’s capable of playing a very controlled and proficient game by parlaying possessions into one-touch passes or by showing the patience to make what he deems as the best option. He can get a bit mundane at times for a player with his skillset and lull games to submission at times and then hit the other end of the spectrum and try to spring a two-zone pass for a transition scoring attempt. While not overly dynamic, his habits limit giveaways as he’s strong on the puck and very cognizant of pressure and creates uncertainty with his ability to set up dekes by moving hands and feet independently and analyzing the ice. Defensively, there are a lot of useful tools at his disposal but he just doesn’t process the game quick enough. His presence in transition doesn’t effectively deter opponents significantly and even though he looks like he’s in good spots and not getting drawn into poor ice to chase, he can be hesitant to make moves to close gaps or on the other end of the spectrum, too aggressive to take a check over the puck. That being said, there is some value in his ability to pick apart plays and break pucks up. With the WHL season delayed in 2020-21, Lambos took his talents to Finland. Unlike some prospects that raised their profile, Lambos struggled at times, calling into question the impact that he can make at the next level.
