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.
The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
