Unless he was on the Ice for some Power play goals against. Power Play goals don't count as plus/minus

Is Mike Lee really all that good. I mean its obvious he has a stacked team in front of him. I mean my little nephew could get a shutout if he only had to face 7 shots a game

A fair question, but I've only ever heard and read good things from scouts who've watched him play. Hopefully the Rams won't have a problem putting away Moorhead in the section finals. After that, they'll be up against even tougher competition in the state tournament. We'll be able to see how he does against more NCAA D1 and draft rated players. All the state tournament games will be televised or recorded.

Yeah that we'll be good. We'll be able to get a better read on him then. I'm rootin for him and I hope he turns out to be a star netminder. Do you think he's better than Andy Iles? Iles always gets a lot of hype when discussing American Prospects.

Sorry, it doesn't work like that. If he was on the ice when Landman scored twice, he'd get a +2, even if he didn't touch the puck. If he was on the ice when a goal was allowed, he would be -1. The net would be +1, even though he didn't register a point.

I didn't think very long about that one.

Only time will tell as he does have a stacked team in front of him but last year as a Sophomore he beat out a Senior goalie who had taken Roseau to the State Tournament the year before.
His coach has called him the best goalie he's ever coached (yes could easily be blowing smoke) but I've also heard opposing coaches say SCSU got a steal in getting him and hockey announcers in MN label him as the best goalie in the state.
He did have a rough Elite league this fall but was the best goalie on his squad. Watching him play he is almost never out of position and seems very calm in net. SCSU won't get him till 2010 so he has a lot of time to mature but I expect him to be a 3 year starter once Dunn leaves.

I don't know why people keep saying that. There were 16 good goaltenders playing in that defensively soft preseason league, and Lee (a junior) finished 4th in save percentage behind three seniors: The guy (Phillippi) who won the state's award for best goaltender, the guy who finished second for that award (Cashetta), and a guy (Sand) who only played half as many minutes as Lee.

Call me crazy, but I think he IMPROVED his reputaion with his play in those Elite League games.

I guess it's a +4 GAA for a guy who gives up less than 1 normally
So maybe it's just rough for him

I'd like to see Rosseau match up against Minnetonka on television. Here's hoping for a dynamic matchup that will let us all know how good Mike Lee is.

wow
if you look at the team stats he faces on average 16.7 shots per game.
well no wonder why he has good stats. his team barely lets a shot on goal.
im not saying hes a bad goalie. but maybe put a few extra shots on him and we'll seee how good he really is.

I agree his team helps him a lot, but just to argue a bit, in last year's state tourney, Lee gave up 4 goals in 3 games while facing 81 shots (avg of 27 a game)

You're crazy. The goaltending was all-around awful during the Elite League, and Lee didn't do much to distinguish himself from the crowd.

Phillippi won that award because they had to give it to somebody. He might actually have an outside shot at making a college team as a back-up or third-stringer. The others probably don't have much a career after high school hockey.

Lee allows one goal to Moorhead one 21 shots in the section final. His SV% holds steady, his GAA goes up by 0.01. Next stop for Roseau... Minnesota State High School Boys Hockey Tournament at the Xcel Center in St. Paul.

I'll definitely keep an eye on Lee in the tourny. Can't wait for HS hockey at the X!

It looks like a few question marks about Lee's quality of opponent will be answered after next season. In an unusual move for a Roseau HS Player, Mike Lee will skip his senior season playing for the Rams and instead play for Dean Blais's Fargo Force of the USHL. This should go a long way towards pinpointing Mike Lee's 2009 draft potential.

What a ripoff...all the hype about the MN HS tournament & then...nothing!

So how did young Mike Lee fare in the tournament?

Unfortunately, not well. A 3.02 GAA and a .901 SV% with one win and two losses. However, that's a pretty small sample size. None of the 9 goals he allowed would have been considered softies though. Also, his team did little to keep pressure in the other end of the ice. They scored only three goals in their two losses.

The tournament raised more questions than it provided answers, but again, next season in the USHL should help answer a lot of those questions.

Nah, if that were true, then anytime his team scored while he was on, he got a point.

Either means his team scores a lot.
He's good

Or both.

It's not that hard to believe. He's been pretty much dominant in HS, doesn't have much left to prove there, and 2 years of Juniors under Blais is not a bad thing.
Also, consider this, if Weslosky leaves SCSU after next year which is possible, Motzko won't bring in Lee straight from high school, so it would benefit him in that regard to play Juniors and leave Roseau. Wouldn't surprise me if this is a bit of insurance.

Taken from the USHL weekly release

Force Is Building: As a USHL expansion team, the Fargo Force have
four tenders to use to sign players to their team for next season. Last
week they signed their fourth and final player, goaltender Mike Lee from
Roseau (Minn.) High School. They have also signed defensemen Garrett
Clarke from Russell Stover AAA and Cody Campbell from Pikes
Peak AAA, as well as forward Bryce Ravndalen of Warroad (Minn.) High
School.
