In order to remain vibrant, every great social movement needs an infusion of youth; fresh faces from a newer, younger generation that can take up the torch and bring a new sense of enthusiasm. Vancouver Roller Hockey was no different in 2008. BUSH had already had two or three youth movements by then. A chance session at William Griffin Park in North Vancouver was the catalyst for VRH when three young high school lads stepped up to the plate. At the forefront was the irrepressible Sam Lam. All it took was two games, and Sam was hooked. From then on, Sam has been making the weekend trip west to Ambleside where he has become VRH's top prodigy. He often rides his Razor kick scooter all the way from North Van to Ambleside with full hockey equipment, a sure sight to see! Right from the beginning, Sam kept pace with VRH's finest. Only in his first year of university, he's still got years ahead of him, and the sky's the limit. Never without his trademark black helmet and full-face cage, Sam is a speedster with a shooting volume that matches almost anyone else in the league. He's not afraid to grind it out in the corner against guys with ten years and 100 pounds on him. Sam also brings an infectious attitude and enthusiasm for the game. He has his best battles against his friend and fellow 2008 rookie Griff Jones, in which they both take their workrate levels to new highs (as well, they get really chippy and physical with each other!). Full of energy, it's typical for Sam to play a 3-4 hour session, and then head straight to soccer and play a full 90 minutes there. 2011 saw Sam Lam reinvent himself completely, as he replaced Alex Elischer as Dom Voser's constant opponent in goal. Shaky at first, Sam's natural athletic prowess ensured that by the end of the season he was considered one of the better goaltenders in Burton Hockey. Expect him to be contending for an all-star spot as a goalie in 2012. Sam's already left a big mark on VRH as the first regular skater developed in-house (i.e. not from BUSH or the VIHL); he already resides eighth in all-time VRH scoring, and is one of VRH's most dedicated players. Sometimes it's the smallest meteor that makes the biggest impact. Sam Lam has done just that at Ambleside.
