Islanders prospect Anders Lee and his Notre Dame Fighting Irish Men's hockey team are headed to the Frozen Four after last night's 2-1 road victory over University of New Hampshire.
One night prior, Lee tallied twice--including the game-winner--for a 4-3 win over Stephane Da Costa and Merrimack University to advance to the NCAA Northeast Regional Final.
Lee, a 6-3, 218-pound centerman, is looking to be a steal for the Islanders. Although selected late in the the 2009 draft (6th round, 152nd overall) Lee has blossomed into a top collegiate player. The 20 year-old Edina, MN native has 24 goals and 20 assists in 43 games during his freshman season with Notre Dame.
Notre Dame will face Minnesota-Duluth April 7 in the Frozen Four.

The Islanders announced "new season subscription pricing and benefits" today. Newsday's Neil Best is on the case. More on that later...
