Badgers Nab Lee from BCHL; Still After Schultz

Andy Baggot indicates that forward Derek Lee from Salmon Arm of the BCHL has given a verbal commitment to play for the Badgers, probably beginning in the 2009 season. From what I've read Lee was also considering Michigan, Boston University and New Hampshire.

The Badgers are still pursuing defenseman Justin Schultz of Westside in the BCHL who has an estimated 20 scholarship offers from NCAA schools. Schultz was ranked #56 in the recent NHL Central Scouting North American mid-term rankings.

Here's a little more on Lee from Todd Milewski.
