Biographical Info

After being secured by the Detroit Red Wings in Entry Draft of the 1969-’70 Season, Lambert was acquired by the Montreal Canadiens in a reverse draft the following year. Lambert commenced his NHL career in the 1973-’74 season, but started to really shine the following season when he became known for his skill in the corners and in front of the net, especially on the power play. He, along with line mates Doug Risebrough and Mario Tremblay, were dubbed “The Kid Line” and were not only a great unit defensively, but they were also great at scoring points and Yvon had 6 seasons where he scored 25 or more goals and 2 times he tallied for 30 plus goals. Over his eight season stretch with the Habs, Lambert was a key component helping his team to four Stanley Cup Championships. After finishing his NHL career with a final year in Buffalo where he once again scored 25 goals, Lambert retired from active play and spent a year coaching the Verdun Junior Canadiens and now works for the Public Relations Department in the Canadien’s Organization.
