A key forward who is a reliable shot for goal, Lee was selected with pick 12 in the 2012 National Draft after an impressive two years at Claremont in the WAFL.
Lee signed a one-year contract extension as a part of the #SaintsFutureFest at the end of the season and will be committed to recapturing the form he showed in late 2013 following a productive summer on the track.
2014 coaches’ perspective – Aaron Hamill (forward coach)
Tom has had some significant shoulder issues over the journey, so he knows the work that lies ahead of him. He’s got an opportunity to play forward for us so we’re hoping he comes back in fantastic shape. He’s clearly restricted a little bit at the moment but we hope we a solid summer on the track, he’ll have a really good base of fitness heading into 2015.
A promising key forward, Lee was picked up by St Kilda on the first day of the AFL trade period in a complex deal involving Adelaide and GWS.
He was a GWS pre-listed player and booted 60 goals in 21 games last year for Claremont as they went back-to-back.
The solidly built marking forward is considered physically mature enough to challenge for a spot in the senior team and provides another goal-kicking option for Scott Watters.

A straight-kicking key forward, Tom Lee improved as his debut year progressed, finishing the year with 10 games and 17 goals.
He arrived at St Kilda from Claremont after a complex trade involving Adelaide and GWS and formed a promising duo with skipper Nick Riewoldt.
Lee is a reliable set-shot and will be 23 years old by the time the 2014 gets underway. If he can begin the year in the same way he finished 2013, then the Saints multi-pronged forward line will benefit greatly from his presence.
