Lee edged Ottawa Senators teammates Mike Hoffman (6-7—13 in 12 GP) and Mark Stone (3-8—11 in 12 GP), New York Rangers right wing Kevin Hayes (6-6—12 in 14 GP), Nashville Predators center Filip Forsberg (4-6—10 in 15 GP), Vancouver Canucks center Bo Horvat (5-4—9 in 14 GP), and Winnipeg Jets goaltender Michael Hutchinson (4-1-3, 2.68 GAA, .898 SV%) for the honor.

Lee, a sixth-round selection (152nd overall) by the Islanders in the 2009 NHL Draft, registered a pair of multigoal games: Feb. 3 vs. FLA and Feb. 12 vs. TOR (including GWG). He then set career highs with four assists/points in a 6-3 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Feb. 14.

The 24-year-old Edina, Minn., native leads all rookies with six game-winning goals this season. He also ranks in the top five among rookies in goals (3rd; 20), points (5th; 33), power-play goals (t-2nd; 4) and shots on goal (2nd; 149) in 58 appearances.

Lee joins Los Angeles Kings left wing Tanner Pearson (October), Nashville Predators center Filip Forsberg (November), Calgary Flames left wing Johnny Gaudreau (December) and Dallas Stars defenseman John Klingberg (January) as Rookie of the Month winners this season.
