BUFFALO, N.Y. — Former Ottawa Senators assistant general manager Randy Lee has pleaded guilty to a harassment charge stemming from an encounter with a 19-year-old male hotel shuttle motorist from Buffalo.
Lee, 57, entered the plea Thursday in Buffalo City Court just before his nonjury trial was supposed to begin. He declined comment when departing the courthouse.
Lee was charged with making lewd comments and massaging on the shoulders of this motorist when attending the NHL’s pre-draft scouting unite in May.
He had been sentenced to time already served one night in jail — and also ordered to pay for a 120 surcharge for pleading guilty.
Lee was suspended by the Senators and stepped in August after 2-3 years with the team, including the past five as assistant general manager and GM of this team’s American Hockey League affiliate.
