Boise, ID – Defenseman Cody Lampl has signed a contract with the ECHL’s Idaho Steelheads, head coach and director of hockey operations Hardy Sauter announced on Monday.
Lampl, 24, became the first player with Idaho roots to play for the Steelheads last season. He was born in Pennsylvania, but grew up in Ketchum, ID, and calls the Wood River Valley his home. His family still lives in the Ketchum area.
Lampl skated in 44 regular-season games with Idaho last season, notching one goal and adding 12 assists. He was instantly popular among Idaho’s fans not only because of his home town, but also because of his fearless play and big hits. Lampl also developed a big group of fans at Boise’s Frank Church High School, where he volunteered much of last season and captained “Cody’s Crew,” a group of Frank Church students who met attendance and academic goals.
