Lambert is from St-Hubert, Que. where he played hockey until he hit the Junior A ranks. His father convinced him to become a referee in order to learn to be a better skater but found he enjoyed officiating more than playing. He began his career officiating at the Midget Triple A level before joining the QMJHL at 22-years-old. He spent three seasons in the “Q” and worked the 2013 President Cup Final. Lambert was then promoted to the ECHL where he spent three year, refereeing the Kelly Cup Final in each of them. During the 2015-16 season, the 28-year-old officiated in 68 games in the AHL before receiving an offer from the National Hockey League for a minor league referee contract.
