The Los Angeles Kings have re-signed forward Trevor Lewis to a four-year deal, per the team site. Lewis tallied 16 points last season, and chipped in two goals in the Kings’ first-round exit. Though the team has not released the financial details, Darren Dreger of Sportsnet tells us that it will be a four-year deal worth a total of $8MM.
A pending unrestricted free agent, Lewis was originally drafted by the Kings in the first round of the 2006 entry draft. A steady contributor to the Kings’ bottom six, Lewis has played in at least 72 games in each of the last five full seasons, and all 48 in the lockout shortened 2012-13.
At $2MM per season, the Kings have locked up a reliable presence in their lineup for a reasonable amount as they look to try and bring back their other UFAs, including Milan Lucic, Luke Schenn and Kris Versteeg.
