Lamont is a phenomenal player on the offensive end but is also a gifted player on the defensive end. Lamont has a high motor, able to continue to push himself while on the ice towards making winning plays on the ice, as well as working to improve his skills off the ice. Lamont is a credible two-way forward, an efficient and strong force in any zone of the ice.
