Tampa Bay Acquires Brian Lee From Ottawa

TAMPA BAY – The Tampa Bay Lightning have acquired defenseman Brian Lee from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for defenseman Matt Gilroy today, Vice President and General Manager Steve Yzerman announced.

Lee, 6-foot-3, 205 pounds, has played in 167 career NHL games, all with the Senators. He has amassed five goals and 28 points after making his NHL debut during the 2007-08 season. In 2008-09 he ranked sixth among all rookie NHL defensemen in points with 13 and shots with 51. Lee also ranked ninth among rookie blue liners in average ice time with 18:53. He also played a career high of 53 games that season.

A native of Moorhead, Minnesota, Lee has played in 123 career AHL games with the Binghamton Senators, recording eight goals and 52 points. He played NCAA hockey for the North Dakota Fighting Sioux, playing in 82 games in two seasons. He was named to the WCHA all-rookie team in 2005-06. Lee also represented the United States at the World Junior Championships on two occasions.

Lee was drafted by the Senators in the first round, ninth overall, of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.

I'd think you would like him, he's a big pretty physical Dman who will drop the gloves on occasion.

Player VS Player, I think that Matt Gilroy is better than Brian Lee... I don't understand the move from Tampa Bay's standpoint.

Tampa loading up on D, but Lee's not an improvement, esp over Gilroy. Sens fans will be happy with this one.

Gilroy is a UFA at the end of the year, probably knew he wouldn't resign him.

I see this as somewhat of a wash yet Tampa may be the winner here. Lee is a good kid, solid and wise but he never meshed in Ottawa. He asked to be traded two years ago to any team south of the border. Hope he has a good career in Florida.
