"Cam is a good-skating, offensive-minded defenseman that fits the current style of play in today's NHL," general manager Jim Rutherford said. "This signing adds more young depth at defense for us. We're excited to have Cam as a member of the Penguins organization."
Lee, 23, recently completed his senior season at Western Michigan University of the National Collegiate Hockey Conference. The 6-foot blue-liner led all defensemen on the team with 21 points in 26 games.
Through 137 games with Western Michigan, Lee recorded 18 goals and 85 points and reached the 20-point mark in three of his four seasons.
He's the nephew of former NHL netminder Jean-Sebastien Giguere.
