BUF­FALO, N.Y. — Ot­tawa Sen­a­tors as­sis­tant gen­eral man­ager

Randy Lee is due in court to face a ha­rass­ment al­le­ga­tion on July 6, putting him in a po­si­tion to at­tend next week’s Na­tional Hockey League draft.

Lee is charged with ha­rass­ing a ho­tel shut­tle driver in Buf­falo dur­ing the NHL’s pre-draft scout­ing com­bine two weeks ago. He was ini­tially sched­uled to ap­pear in court on June 22, the day the league holds the first round of its two-day draft in Dal­las.

The court date was changed shortly af­ter Lee en­tered a plea of not guilty to mak­ing lewd com­ments and rub­bing the shoul­ders of a 19-year-old male ho­tel shut­tle driver on May 30.

Lee was charged with sec­ond­de­gree ha­rass­ment and faces a fine and up to 15 days in jail if guilty.

In an email to The As­so­ci­ated Press, NHL deputy com­mis­sioner Bill Daly said the league has no po­si­tion on whether Lee can at­tend the draft. Daly said that de­ci­sion was up to the Sen­a­tors. The Sen­a­tors said on June 1 they were re­view­ing the sit­u­a­tion.
