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.
That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
