Former UND defenseman Brian Lee has re-signed with the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Lee’s new deal is worth $2.3 million over two years. It’s a one-way contract, which means he would get paid the same in the AHL as the NHL. Translation: The Lightning fully expect he will be an every day NHL guy.
Lee was traded from the Ottawa Senators to the Lightning before the deadline last season. He played 20 games with Tampa, registering eight assists. Lee has played five seasons in the NHL.
The Moorhead High grad was going to be a restricted free agent.
