Lee Falardeau (born July 22, 1983) is an American professional ice hockey center who most recently played professionally for the Charlotte Checkers, then of the ECHL, in 2009. He was selected by the New York Rangers in the 2nd round (33rd overall) of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career[edit]

After playing for the U.S. National Junior Team for two seasons, Falardeau joined the college hockey circuit with the Michigan State Spartans. Following a 14-point rookie campaign with Michigan State, he was drafted 33rd overall in the second round by the New York Rangers in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft. (The pick was acquired by the Rangers from the Florida Panthers in the Pavel Bure deal.) Falardeau then chose to forgo his final year of eligibility with Michigan State after his third year with the club to turn pro in the minor leagues. Since then, he played with both the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League (AHL) and Charlotte Checkers of the East Coast Hockey League (ECHL), when both were affiliates of the New York Rangers.
