New York Newsday
ImpactWith Michael Grabner out indefinitely with a concussion, Isles coach Jack Capuano said: "I think Anders Lee deserves an opportunity to move up on that line. He's played well for us. When Grabner went down the last game [in Vancouver] we put him up there with Nielson and Okposo and I thought they really played well . . . So, it's a good combination and most likely that's the guy we'll probably play on that line." Lee, called up in late February, has five goals and two assists in seven games. He had 22 and 19 for AHL affiliate Bridgeport in 54 games. "Everything's been falling into place for me, things have been going well," Lee, 23, said. "I've been playing with some really good guys, whether it's [Ryan] Strome or [Colin] McDonald, Okie or Fransie, it doesn't really matter who." We've been suggesting here for several days now that you may wish to invest in Lee for your fantasy league. We strongly suggest it now - if he's still available.
