Here is the story of Los Angeles Kings forward Trevor Lewis’ career and how he made it to the Stanley Cup.
He was born on January 8, 1987 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Lewis started playing amateur in 2004. He played for the Owen Sound (OHL 2006-07) and Des Moines (USHL 2005-06). In the OHL he represented in the Western Conference of the 2007 OHL-All-Star Classic. While in the USHL he was named player of the year, Forward of the year, selected as the USHL’s First-Team All-Star, played in the USHL Prospects All-Star game and received the Curt Hammer Award, which is for the USHL’s player who best combines character and skill on and off the ice.
After an amazing season like that Lewis went to the big leagues.
The 6’1” 198- pounder was drafted in 2006 by the Kings as the 17th overall pick, and signed him to a three-year entry level contract.
He played for the Owen Sound before making his debut with the Kings AHL team the Manchester Monarchs. In 2008 he made his NHL debut and in 2011 he signed a two-year extension with the Kings.
Lewis’ most note-worthy moment came in the 2011–12 season, on June 11, 2012, where he scored two goals in the clinching game six of the Stanley Cup Final to help the Kings win their first Stanley Cup in franchise history.
Lewis helped the Kings repeat history in 2014 once again.
In 276 NHL regular-season games Lewis has 48 points and a minus -13 rating. In 70 playoff contest appearances he has 21 points and aminus-2 rating.
Lewis has earned a bronze medal for Team USA at 2007 World Junior Championships and a bronze medal for Team USA at the 2006 Viking Cup. He was selected to potentially make Team USA in the 2014 Winter Olympics but didn’t make the cut.
