Anders Lee has re-signed with the New York Islanders.

Lee accepted the qualifying offer the Islanders made to him as a restricted free agent. He had nine goals and 14 points in 22 games in 2013-14.
Jul 11 - 12:52 PM

Anders Lee potted his seventh goal of the year in the Islanders' 3-2 shootout win over New Jersey on Friday.

He snapped a 12-game goalless drought in the process. Lee had two assists during his goal slump. In his previous eight NHL games, he amassed six markers and three assists.

Tampa Bay Lightning coach Jon Cooper thinks very highly of Islanders forward Anders Lee.

It wasn't that long ago that Cooper and Lee were both in the United States Hockey League. "Not to embarrass him, but he's one of not only the greatest players I've coached for that level, but just as good a human being," Cooper said. "A born leader, and he's a winner. The kid just finds a way to will teams to win." Lee is getting an opportunity to show what he can do with the Islanders and so far he's made the most of it by scoring six goals and 10 points in 12 games.
Mar 27 - 10:49 AM

Islanders forward Anders Lee was held off the scoresheet in Tuesday's 6-0 loss to the Wild.

Lee has been one of the few players to step up in the absence of the injured John Tavares and entered the game with five points during a three-game scoring streak. Despite not registering a point in this game, the young forward did direct a whopping eight shots on goal in the defeat.
Mar 18 - 10:19 PM

Opportunity is knocking for Anders Lee, the Islanders' recent callup who appears very likely to join Kyle Okposo and Frans Nielsen on the top line at home against the Sharks Friday night.

With Michael Grabner out indefinitely with a concussion, Isles coach Jack Capuano said: "I think Anders Lee deserves an opportunity to move up on that line. He's played well for us. When Grabner went down the last game [in Vancouver] we put him up there with Nielson and Okposo and I thought they really played well . . . So, it's a good combination and most likely that's the guy we'll probably play on that line." Lee, called up in late February, has five goals and two assists in seven games. He had 22 and 19 for AHL affiliate Bridgeport in 54 games. "Everything's been falling into place for me, things have been going well," Lee, 23, said. "I've been playing with some really good guys, whether it's [Ryan] Strome or [Colin] McDonald, Okie or Fransie, it doesn't really matter who." We've been suggesting here for several days now that you may wish to invest in Lee for your fantasy league. We strongly suggest it now - if he's still available.
Mar 13 - 10:14 AM

Anders Lee scored a goal and registered an assist in the Islanders' 7-4 win over the Canucks Monday night.

Lee now has five points in his last four games. He might be worth an investment in your fantasy league, because he is getting a lot of power play time also. Frans Nielsen and Josh Bailey both had a goal and an assist for the Islanders, while Ryan Strome, Calvin De Haan, Matt Martin and Cal Clutterbuck also scored in the victory. Defenseman Travis Hamonic had two assists and Kyle Okposo had three assists for the Islanders.
Mar 11 - 4:37 AM

Since being promoted to the New York Islanders on Feb. 25, Anders Lee has been producing.

Lee, who had a goal and assist in his two-game sniff of NHL life at the end of last season after he turned pro out of Notre Dame, has continued to find the net. He scored his fourth goal in five games Thursday in Edmonton, and he's at seven points (5-2-7) in seven career games, a neat little pace. He might be worth an investment in your fantasy league.
Mar 8 - 10:16 AM

Anders Lee scored a goal in the Islanders' 3-2 overtime loss to the Oilers Thursday night.

It was the fourth goal in five games for Lee, who was recalled after the break for the 2014 Sochi Olympics. He is getting also power play time so he could be a good pick in deeper fantasy leagues.
Mar 7 - 3:31 AM

Anders Lee scored a goal and registered an assist in the Islanders' 3-2 overtime win on Tuesday.

Lee is one of the players getting what is essentially an extended tryout as the Islanders look towards the 2014-15 campaign. He has three goals and four points in four games.
Mar 5 - 9:42 AM

Anders Lee scored twice in his season debut on Thursday.

With their playoff hopes dashed, John Tavares out for the rest of the season, and with Thomas Vanek likely to be traded, the Islanders are expected to lean on its young players for the rest of the campaign. Lee is one of those players and is certainly worth keeping an eye on. He's been very effective in the minors with 22 goals and 41 points in 54 AHL games in 2013-14.
Feb 28 - 10:36 AM

Forward Anders Lee has been recalled by the New York Islanders.

Along with Ryan Strome and Mike Halmo, Lee was one of three members of the Islanders AHL affiliate in Bridgeport to get the call. He has little fantasy value at the moment.
Feb 24 - 8:13 PM

Anders Lee is likely to be called up to the Islanders in the next couple of days.

The Islanders will need a couple of forwards with John Tavares out for the season and Matt Martin out with a lower body injury. Lee played a couple of games with the Islanders last season after finishing his career at Notre Dame. The center has 22 goals and 41 points in 54 games with Bridgeport of the AHL this season.
Feb 24 - 7:30 AM

Anders Lee failed to make the Islanders' opening game roster.

Lee had 38 points in 41 NCAA games before recording two points in two contests with the Islanders last season. It wouldn't be surprising to see him enjoy another NHL stint before the 2013-14 campaign is over.

Anders Lee felt he learned a lot during his brief stint with the New York Islanders.

"With how things are, I need to prove myself right away and be ready to go wherever I'm at," Lee said. He's scheduled to become a restricted free agent in the summer of 2014. Lee will be fighting for a roster spot during the Islanders' training camp.
