In Islanders prospect news, 2009 5th round draft pick Anders Lee was named USHL rookie of the year. The 19 year old prospect had 35 goals, 31 assists, and lead the team in scoring with 66 points in 59 games. "Anders is the total package - and to win an Anderson Cup, you need to have a player like Anders Lee on your team," Green Bay Gamblers Head Coach and General Manager Jon Cooper told Islanders Authorized. "What makes him unique is that he can excel in all three zones, and not many players can do that."
