Lee had a great week last week. He showed up in a big way and showed why he is indeed the captain of the New York Islanders. On the season, Lee currently has five points off of two goals and three assists in five games played this year.

In the game against the Sharks, Lee got the Islanders on the board to tie the game at one in the middle of the second period to tie the game at one. This goal came off an assist by Pelech and Nelson, but he wasn't quite done on the week.

"“Jeez, I was out there for a couple of celebrations with him,” Lee said. “I mean, the way he ripped those two was great.”"

Lee also netted a goal when the Islanders played the Devils. This was the only goal that the Islanders would score, but it kept them from being shut out. The goal came at the end of the game with about three minutes left to play in the third period and was assisted by Palmieri and Barzal.
