Sweatt-lee_mediumSweatt, 24, born in Elburn Illinois, played 4 seasons with Colorado College in the NCAA (go figure) between 2003 and 2007. He split the 2006-07 season with Colorado College and the San Antonio Rampage of the AHL. Since then he has played for TPS Turku of the Finnish League, Salzburg EC in Austria, and Riga Dynamo of the KHL.


-5'8" and about 190 pounds.

-Some general stories about Sweatt here.

-Sweatt's statistics here.

-Another defenceman who apparently is good at moving the puck and possesses a great shot.

-Wow, Gillis is loading up on defencemen. Time will tell if any of these guys show NHL potential.

-For your viewing pleasure, here is a clip of Sweatt decking a guy along the boards:

Here he is scoring his first goal as a member of the Dynamo:

-Keep your head up, Lee!

Anyway, this looks like a Moose roster player at the most, but Sweatt will get his shot at training camp nad you never know....
