Anders Lee is likely in for a big payday.

Lee accepted a one-year, $850,500 qualifying offer for the 2014-15 campaign and has given the Islanders plenty of bang for their buck. He has 20 goals and 32 points in 56 contests in his first full campaign. At the age of 24, Lee is scheduled to become just a restricted free agent this summer, so the Islanders aren't in any significant danger of losing him, but they'll need to give him a significant raise all the same. It wouldn't be surprising if the two sides come to terms on a multi-year contract now that he's established himself as an important part of the Islanders.

That's brought Lee up to nine goals and 13 points in 31 contests in 2014-15. He's only averaging 12:12 minutes per contest, which makes it hard to recommend him in standard leagues. At the same time, his offensive upside is great enough to warrant keeping an eye on him.

His output should increase as he becomes more comfortable in the league.
