Los Angeles Kings forward Trevor Lewis signed a two-year contract extension Tuesday. Financial terms of the contract were not released. Lewis could have become an unrestricted free agent after the season.
Lewis, 27, has a career-best six goals and five assists in 70 games.
Taken by the Kings with the 17th pick of the 2006 NHL Draft, Lewis has 18 goals and 48 points in 273 games. He has 16 points in 40 Stanley Cup Playoff games, including three goals and nine points in 20 games when the Kings won the 2012 Stanley Cup.
I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
