Lee is a 5'9, 150 pound right shot defenseman who according to Powell River general manager and head coach Tyler Kuntz said this about Lee in an article in the Powell River Peak back in August when he traded for him. “Jayden has the ability to control a game with his brain,” said Kuntz. “He's really intelligent, he's very good with the puck, and he has great vision and a very good shot.”
A native of North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, Lee is in his second full season in the BCHL. Currently he has played in 14 games this season for Powell River with five assists.
