As NBC Sports reports, there has been speculation that the 36-year-old defenseman, who suited up for KHL's Metallurg Magnitogorsk in the past four years, could be on his way to Buffalo, joining Viktor Antipin, whom he was partnered with in Magnitogorsk.

Moreover, as Aivis Kalniņš adds, Lee is not going to return to the KHL if he will not get a shot in the NHL. Instead, Switzerland's National League A seems likely to be his backup plan.

The Canadian, who was never drafted and never played an NHL game so far, spent most of his North American career in the AHL, before he moved to Europe in 2010, playing for DEL's Kölner Haie and Adler Mannheim, SHL's Färjestad BK, and most recently KHL's Metallurg Magnitogorsk.

With Metallurg Magnitogorsk this past season, Lee managed to put up 15 goals and 71 assists in a total of 78 games.
