Despite there being a pause in the regular season due the Coronavirus outbreak, the Penguins business doesn’t stop — and they showed that today, signing college free agent Cam Lee to a two-year entry level contract.

The offensive-minded defenseman recently finished his senior year at Western Michigan University.

“Cam is a good-skating, offensive-minded defenseman that fits the current style of play in today’s NHL,” said Penguins General Manager Jim Rutherford. “This signing adds more young depth at defense for us. We’re excited to have Cam as a member of the Penguins organization.”

He scored 21 points in 26 games during the senior campaign.

Lee was in attendance at last year’s summer development camp.

Lee, 23-years old, a Nova Scotia native, spent four years at Western Michigan, playing in 137 games, recording 18 goals and 67 assists for a total 85 points.

The contract runs through the end of the 2012-22 season.
