Isles Ink Lee To Four-Year Pact

News: Anders Lee signed a four-year, $15 million contract extension with the Islanders on Tuesday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Anders Lee shined in his first full NHL season in 2014-15, scoring 25 goals and chipping in 16 points in 76 games. For a time, he even saw top-line minutes alongside John Tavares, something that could occur with more regularity if the Islanders elect to part ways with Kyle Okposo during the summer. Regardless, the 24-year-old should be locked into a role on one of the Isles' two scoring lines until his deal expires at the end of the 2018-19 campaign.

Lee And Isles Have Yet To Begin Negotiations

News: The Islanders and Anders Lee have yet to begin negotiations on a new contract, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: While signing Anders Lee is important for the Islanders, he is a restricted free agent and thus unlikely to get an offer that would force the Islanders hand. They will sign Lee eventually, but he is not a priority at this point in time.

Islanders' Lee Likely Scratch Saturday

News: Anders Lee is likely to be a scratch for Game 6 on Saturday, Zac Boyer of the Washington Times reports.
Analysis: Anders Lee will likely be replaced by Eric Boulton in the lineup. The 24-year-old had been ineffective through the first five games of the Islanders' series and all signs point to Lee sitting out for Game 6.

Lee Powers Isles' Ill-Fated Comeback

News: Anders Lee scored a pair of third-period goals Tuesday against the Flyers, but it wasn't enough to avoid a 5-4 loss.
Analysis: With the Isles facing a 4-1 deficit in the third period, Anders Lee went to work. First he scored a goal to make it 4-2, and 11 minutes later, he scored his 25th goal of the year with 28 seconds remaining to tie the game. Unfortunately, the Flyers' Brayden Schenn struck with three seconds left to counterfeit Lee's comeback efforts. The 24-year-old had been slumping recently, to the tune of just one point in his prior 10 games, but he's now cleared 40 points in his first full NHL campaign, and Lee's shown this year that his future surely holds greater things.

Isles' Lee Builds Point Streak To Six

News: Anders Lee scored the Isles' only goal Tuesday in a loss to the Rangers, pushing his point streak to six games.
Analysis: He's got just a single point in each of those six games, but hey, a streak's a streak, and no one's complaining about Anders Lee's 23 goals on the season. He continues to grow into one of the game's better young power forwards.

Anders Lee, LW, NYI Isles' Lee Has Five-Game Point Streak

Anders Lee

Isles' Lee Has Five-Game Point Streak

News: Anders Lee built his point streak to five games with an assist in Monday's win over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: It ties the longest scoring run of the season for Anders Lee, who has been exceptional since landing on the top line with John Tavares. Even so, there's a chance that Lee's fantasy value may have already hit its peak, as Tuesday's return of Kyle Okposo (detached retina) from IR will likely force the Islanders to drop one of their wings from the top line. It should make for an incredibly difficult decision, as like Lee, the winger on the side opposite Tavares, Josh Bailey, has also thrived. Continue to monitor the Isles' line arrangements in the days to come.

Anders Lee

Isles' Lee Finds Back Of Net In Loss

News: Anders Lee netted his 21st goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Stars.
Analysis: Anders Lee, a former sixth-round draft choice, has been one of the bigger surprises in the NHL this year. Only 30 skaters have more goals than the Minnesota native, and it's worth noting that he's fired 17 shots on goal in the past five games.

Anders Lee, LW, NYI Hot Play Continues For Isles' Lee

Anders Lee

Hot Play Continues For Isles' Lee

News: Anders Lee contributed a goal, two PIM, and four shots on goal in Tuesday's win over the Coyotes.
Analysis: Anders Lee's scoring surge since joining the Isles' top line has largely been responsible for his uptick in fantasy ownership, but his sizable contributions in other categories shouldn't be overlooked either. In addition to the seven goals and seven assists he's provided over his last 13 games, Lee has averaged 3.46 shots and 2.69 hits during that span.

Isles' Lee Chips In Assist, Six SOG

News: Anders Lee compiled a team-high six shot attempts and assisted on one of the Islanders' five scores in Thursday's triumph over the Predators.
Analysis: The young forward has been spectacular since ascending to a top-line role next to John Tavares. Over 10 February contests, Anders Lee has notched six goals and six assists, while firing off 35 shots on net. That level of production plays in any format, so don't hesitate to scoop Lee off the waiver wire if he's still available.

2/14/2015

Isles' Lee: Four-Assists, Five-Game Streak

News: Anders Lee stretched his current streak to five games and 12 points with a four-assist effort Saturday against the Blue Jackets. He has three goals and nine assists on the streak.
Analysis: He's talented, but playing alongside John Tavares surely helps. We recommend plugging him into your lineup and taking full advantage of this outburst.

Anders Lee

Lee's Two Goals Lift Isles

News: Anders Lee scored twice Thursday in a win over Toronto, opening the scoring with an early-first-period goal and finishing it with the game-winner in the second period.
Analysis: That's points in three straight for Anders Lee, who's compiled a very goal-centric fantasy line of 18 tallies and just six helpers in 49 games. His seven shots Thursday tied a season high. Lee's got a strong offensive game, and it should continue developing over the next couple seasons.

Lee Pots Both Islander Goals In Loss

News: Anders Lee scored both the Isles' goals Tuesday in a 4-2 loss to the Panthers.
Analysis: One came at even strength, the other on a power play, as Anders Lee snapped a three-game scoreless skid. He still only owns five assists on the season, but his 15 goals go a long way toward making up for that, at least in deeper formats.

Anders Lee, LW, NYI Four-Game Point Streak For Isles' Lee

Anders Lee

Four-Game Point Streak For Isles' Lee

News: Anders Lee tallied a goal on his lone shot attempt in Saturday's loss to the Canadiens.
Analysis: The young center is now riding a four-game point streak, producing three goals and an assist during that time. Incredibly, two of those goals have been of the game-winning variety, giving him a total of five on the season. Continue to ride him while he retains a hot hand.

Goals In Two Straight For Isles' Lee

News: Anders Lee scored a goal for the second consecutive game Tuesday against the Rangers, backhanding a rebound past Henrik Lundqvist for his 11th tally of the season.
Analysis: Anders Lee also found twine Saturday in Columbus, so things appear to be picking back up for him a bit after a stretch of four straight scoreless games. His productivity will continue to be limited by his modest ice time, Lee has hyper-consistently played between 10 and 14 minutes per game. He hasn't cleared 15 minutes of ice time in any game this year, and yet he's third on the team in goals, ahead of bigger names like Kyle Okposo, Frans Nielsen and Ryan Strome.

Isles' Lee Adds Goal, Assist In Win

News: Anders Lee picked up a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Jets.
Analysis: The Isles' secondary scoring exploded Wednesday for five goals, and Anders Lee got in on the action on multiple occasions. He now has nine goals and four assists in 31 games this year as his team continues to score at 3.00 goals per game, which is the league's fourth-best pace.

Isles' Lee Scores Game-Winner Vs. Red Wings

News: Anders Lee netted the game-winning goal and added an assist in Friday's win over Detroit.
Analysis: The third-liner now has six goals and nine points in 26 games, to go with a plus-4 rating. Skating on a line with Brock Nelson, it's possible Anders Lee could hit 20 goals in 2014-15. He is a great secondary scorer for an Islanders team that ranks second in the Eastern Conference with 44 points.

No Suspension For Isles' Lee

News: Anders Lee will not be suspended for his check to the head on the Blues' Carl Gunnarsson on Saturday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Anders Lee received a fine for the hit, but his lack of a track record for dirty play likely influenced the league office's decision to go lax on his punishment. Look for Lee to remain in the Isles' lineup Tuesday versus the Wild.

Isles' Lee Will Have Disciplinary Hearing

News: Anders Lee will have a hearing with the Department of Player Safety, according to the Islanders Point Blank.
Analysis: The hearing will be because of a check to the head of the Blues' Carl Gunnarsson on Saturday. Anders Lee only received a two minute penalty for the hit during the game and Gunnarsson was not hurt so even if here were to be suspeneded, it shouldn't be for more than a game or two.

Isles' Lee Gets Goal, Seven PIM In Win

News: Anders Lee tallied his fourth goal of the season in Wednesday's victory over the Capitals.
Analysis: Anders Lee gathered a rebound and put it past Caps goalie Braden Holtby to give the Isles a 1-0 lead in the first period. He would later earn seven penalty minutes later in the night in what amounted to a strong all-around performance for the young forward.

Isles' Lee Scores Second Of Season

News: Anders Lee scored an unassisted power-play goal in Tuesday's 6-0 domination of the Avs.
Analysis: Semyon Varlamov kind of casually nudged a loose puck right into the slot with the Isles on the power play, and Anders Lee swooped right in with a snap shot for the goal. It's just his second point (both goals) of the year, and his even-strength ice time remains too limited for him to be counted on for consistent offense, but the 24-year-old Minnesotan does have longer-term upside, having totaled 46 points in 59 career AHL games.

Isles' Lee Records Goal In Victory

News: Anders Lee found the back of the net in Saturday's 7-5 win over the Stars.
Analysis: Anders Lee led off the game's scoring by redirecting a shot into the net, earning him his 11th goal in just 26 career games. The 24-year-old has already earned a prominent spot on the Isles' power play since being recalled from AHL Bridgeport on Thursday and could earn more minutes at even strength after his solid showing Saturday. Those in deeper leagues should place Lee squarely on their radar.

Isles Expected To Recall Lee From AHL

News: Anders Lee is expected to be recalled from AHL Bridgeport before Thursday game against the Bruins, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Anders Lee was caught in a numbers game during preseason, as he was one of the team's few young forwards that could be sent to the AHL without having to pass through waivers. Not only will he be recalled by the Islanders, but there is a chance Lee could play on the second line with Ryan Strome and Brock Nelson, all of whom skated with one another at Bridgeport a season earlier.

Isles Send Lee To Minors

News: Anders Lee was assigned to AHL Bridgeport on Tuesday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Anders Lee was among the Islanders' last two cuts Saturday, ultimately losing out because he'll be able to return to the minors without first clearing waivers. With nine goals and five assists over 22 games with the Islanders last season, Lee would seem to offer some potential as a fantasy option if he ends up seeing regular ice time with New York later this season. Before that materializes, however, he'll likely need one or two of the team's many centers to succumb to an injury.

Isles' Lee Likely To Begin Season In AHL

News: Anders Lee will likely begin the season in the AHL Newsday.
Analysis: Anders Lee is caught in a numbers game with the Islanders. He is the only forward who can be sent down to the minors without being placed on waivers so the team doesn't have to risk losing him.
