POTSDAM BEARS HOCKEY NEWS:
The Pittsburgh Penguins recently called up former SUNY Potsdam standout hockey player, Chris Lee, from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League.
Lee, 29, lead all Wilkes-Barre/Scranton blueliners with seven points through 15 games, and is third overall on the club with 41 shots.
The 6-foot, 185-pound defenseman made his long anticipated dream come true Thursday, Nov. 19, against the Ottawa Senators. Lee signed with the Penguins this past off-season after playing five-plus seasons with Bridgeport, Omaha, Albany and Iowa. In 185 career AHL games, Lee has amassed 83 points on 18 goals and 65 assists.
Lee is a native of MacTier, Ontario. He was a member of SUNY Potsdam Bears from 2000-04 where he tallied 115 points in 110 games. Lee was twice named a SUNYAC Second Team All-American and was named SUNYAC First Team All-American during his senior season, where he also finished the regular season as the leading scorer among all NCAA Division III hockey players. In addition to being named All-American, Lee was also named 2004 SUNYAC Hockey Player of the Year and a first team forward on the 2004 All-Conference team.
