The captain is coming back to the Island.
Anders Lee has reportedly agreed to a seven-year deal with the Islanders worth $7 million per season, reports TSN's Pierre LeBrun. Lee confirmed the deal on his Twitter...
Lee's re-signing comes after the Islanders lost the Artemi Panarin sweepstakes to the crosstown rival Rangers.
Last season, Lee scored 51 points (28 goals, 23 assists) in a full 82-game season. He also had one goal and three assists in eight playoff games before the Hurricanes knocked the Islanders out of the playoffs.
Lee has solidified himself as not only a top-line left winger, but a leader on and off the ice. The team named him a captain in Barry Trotz' first season accordingly.
The former sixth rounder has playd in 152 games with the Isles, totaling 152 goals and 106 assists for 258 career points. And those totals will only go up in Islanders colors for the next seven seasons.
