RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Lee actually played in two games for the Islanders at the end of last season, scoring a goal and assist. Lee proved offensively that he may be ready to play in the NHL, but he did have problems in the defensive end. Coming out of college, Lee may need a little bit more seasoning in the AHL to get used to professional hockey before he is ready to become a full-time member of the Islanders.
Lee is a top prospect for the Islanders but has elected to stay at Notre Dame for another season and fight for a national championship. He is at least one more year away from playing professional hockey. Keep an eye on him.
Lee has not yet turned pro as he is still playing at Notre Dame. Although Lee doesn't project to be a superstar, he has all the talent to be a solid second-line center in the NHL. He has good size, is defensively responsible, an asset on faceoffs, and can put the puck in the net. This combination makes him someone to watch in the next couple of years.
