Los Angeles Kings forward Trevor Lewis will be blogging for NHL.com throughout the Stanley Cup Final, offering his insight on what is happening inside the walls of his team's locker room and within the confines of the rink.
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- I was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, and so I guess I had what might be considered a non-traditional path to the NHL.
My dad and his family were Canadian and he played hockey growing up. We also lived across the street from an ice rink in Salt Lake City, so when I was 2 years old, he took me over and I started learning to skate.
I just loved it. I played every sport growing up, but it always seemed like hockey was my favorite. I always seemed to gravitate toward hockey.
