Lightning assign Lee to AHL

The Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday announced defenseman Brian Lee had been reassigned to the club's American Hockey League affiliate, the Syracuse Crunch.

In 22 games this season, Lee had no points, a minus-13 rating and 16 penalty minutes. He had been a healthy scratch the past seven games.

Selected by the Ottawa Senators with the ninth pick of the 2005 NHL Draft, the 26-year-old has five goals and 36 points in 209 games in six NHL seasons.
