Playing careerEdit

Throughout his NHL career, Lambert's primary role was that of an enforcer. Undrafted, he was signed as a free agent by the expansion Anaheim Mighty Ducks in 1993. He would ultimately play in only 46 games with Anahein, spending the majority of his time in their farm system. On July 29, 1996, he was signed by the Ottawa Senators, and was a regular in Ottawa lineup for two full seasons before being claimed by the Nashville Predators in the 1998 NHL Expansion Draft. After one full season in Nashville, Lambert was traded to the Atlanta Thrashers for Randy Robitaille in 1999. He would return for a second stint in Anaheim in 2001–02 before officially announcing his retirement on July 11, 2003.

He would play in 487 regular season NHL games, scoring 27 goals and 66 assists for 93 points, while racking up 1391 penalty minutes. After retiring, he accepted a position as assistant coach with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the Ontario Hockey League, where he began his career as a junior player. On June 24, 2008, Lambert was named head coach of the Greyhounds, replacing Craig Hartsburg who signed to coach the NHL's Ottawa Senators.

Coaching careerEdit

Lambert became the assistant coach of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds in the 2004–05 season, and remained in that position with the club until the summer of 2008, when Greyhounds head coach Craig Hartsburg left the team to become the head coach of the Ottawa Senators. The Greyhounds promoted Lambert to the head coaching position.

In his first season as the head coach, Sault Ste. Marie failed to qualify for the post-season, as the young, rebuilding club finished with their fewest point total since the 1994-95 season, and finished in last place in the OHL.
