The Los Angeles Kings
on Friday signed restricted free-agent forward Trevor Lewis
to a two-year, $1.45 million contract.
Lewis, the 17th pick of the 2010 Entry Draft, had 3 goals and 10 assists in 72 regular-season games, his first full NHL season. He was better in the postseason, finishing with a goal, 3 assists and 17 hits in six games.
Lewis also played a big role in the Kings' penalty killing, averaging three minutes per game in shorthanded ice time, second among the team's forwards, as the Kings killed off 85.5 percent of the power plays they faced in the playoffs.
The Kings also signed six players who spent most of last season with their American Hockey League team, the Manchester Monarchs to one-year deals -- forwards Marc-Andre Cliche
, Rich Clune
and David Meckler
, defensemen Andrew Campbell
and Patrick Mullen
, and goaltender Jeff Zatkoff
