Right winger Joe Lamb competed for seven different NHL teams in the 1920s and '30s. He was a decent scorer with a hard-nosed edge to his game that earned him respect throughout the league.

Born in Sussex, New Brunswick, Lamb played three years of senior with the local Dairy Kings club before heading to Montreal to play for several clubs at the same level. In January 1928 he was signed as a free agent by the Montreal Maroons then scored 13 points in 21 games. After playing most of the next season in Montreal, he was sent to the Ottawa Senators in exchange for George Boucher.

During the 1929-30 season, Lamb scored a personal best 29 goals skating with Frank Finnigan and Hec Kilrea. The rugged forward also led the NHL with 119 minutes in penalties. He proceeded to go on a grand tour of the NHL in the '30s by suiting up for the New York Americans, Boston Bruins, Montreal Canadiens, St. Louis Eagles, and Detroit Red Wings. Lamb also had a second go around with the Americans and Maroons as clubs constantly saw him as an important figure who could augment their line up. He retired in 1940 after playing two years with the AHL's Springfield Indians
