Winnipeg ICE Defenceman Carson Lambos Shut Down for the Season

The Winnipeg ICE will be without defensive stalwart Carson Lambos for the remainder of the 2020-21 shortened season due to a leg injury.

The 2003-born projected 2021 first round NHL draft prospect has travelled back home to Winnipeg and is expected to undergo a medical procedure in April. Further details as to the 18-year-old’s ailment have not been released.

“Winnipeg ICE defenceman Carson Lambos has left the Regina Hub and returned to Winnipeg for a medical procedure,” the ICE wrote in a prepared statement shared on March 17. “Carson is expected to make a full recovery. More information will be provided at a later date.”

Having suited up in just two games for Winnipeg this season, the 6-foot-1, 200-pound blueliner spent a good portion of the 2020-21 season skating with JYP of the Finnish Liiga, competition against high-level competition in hopes to better prepare himself for the 2020-21 WHL season and upcoming 2021 NHL Entry Draft.

He skated in 17 total games overseas split between the JYP U-18, U-20 and professional team, where he amassed two goals, 14 points and 10 penalty minutes. Due to his medical issue, Lambos will now be unable to skate with Canada at the U-18 World Championship in late April.

Lambos will return back to the Regina hub, where he will join his teammates as somewhat of a cheerleader, prior to head back home to Winnipeg where his procedure will occur in late-April.
