Stanley Cup champion Trevor Lewis has a new place to play thanks to the lockout.

The ECHL’s Utah Grizzlies announced they signed Lewis to a deal to play for them. There he’ll be joining up with Montreal’s Colby Armstrong as well as former NHLers Riley Armstrong and Brad Mills.

Lewis is a Salt Lake City native, so joining up with the local squad makes plenty of sense to get some games in. He’s not the only Kings player in the ECHL right now as Kyle Clifford is with the Ontario Reign in Southern California.

Last season with the Kings, Lewis had three goals and four assists during the regular season but became a playoff hero of sorts adding another three goals and six assists on L.A.’s march to the title.

    Take a good look at this picture people, because this is “exactly” what you’re going to see again come this summer! To hell with Booth and Price I say, as we Kings don’t just beat teams in the playoffs … we butcher them ! :)

    GO KINGS GO !!! … TODAY, TOMORROW AND FOREVER !!!!

    Whahoo, right where the NHL belongs…in the minor leagues.

    Right now this game IS A MINOR LEAUGE SPORT, trying to be a big league sport.

    This kind of “ECHL signing” is exactly what the sport needs, that is…to get itself where it belongs so it can flourish. Get the players, owners and fans to realize that they are a “minor league sport.” The sooner the FANS realize this, and therefore demand ticket prices to be $9 a seat, and beers $3 a paper glass the sooner the players and owners will realize that THAT IS what this sport is worth.

    Example, for a third line center on the “idiotic” Florida Panthers to make $3 mil a year is insane. And it’s killing this sport. Change the economics to match the reality of this sport and the game will go. But to expect fans to pay for players to play for millions a year (and here’s the rub, the owners STILL lose money) is just f**king stupid. You have owners and players who all think they are big league, sticking it to fans who WISH they were, and all you end up with this lockout after lockout.
