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 driver in Buffalo.

The 57-year-old Lee entered the plea Friday in Buffalo City Court just before his non-jury trial was to begin.

Lee was charged with making lewd comments and rubbing the shoulders of the driver while attending the NHL’s predraft scouting combine in May.

He was sentenced to time already served – one night in jail – and ordered to pay a $120 surcharge for pleading guilty.

Lee was suspended by the Senators and resigned in August after 23 years with the team, including the past five as assistant general manager and GM of the team’s American Hockey League affiliate.
