We look forward to his continued contribution to our program as he prepares for what will be a very successful collegiate career with the Spartan hockey program”.

Michigan State had the following to say about the Landmark, Manitoba native, “We are excited to add Lee to the Spartan hockey program.

We currently have a young team, and are excited about adding a promising young player to that mix for the coming seasons.”
