The L.A. Kings have resigned forward Trevor Lewis to a two-year contract extension, the club announced on Tuesday.

Lewis, 27, has appeared in 70 games for L.A. this season, scoring a career-high six goals. He was the Kings’ first-round pick at the 2006 NHL Entry Draft and, this past summer, was selected to participated at USA Hockey’s Olympic orientation camp, one of just 24 forwards invited.

Lewis also helped the Kings capture the Stanley Cup in 2012, scoring nine points in 20 games while averaging nearly 16 minutes a night.

No word yet on the financials for Lewis, a pending UFA that played this season on a one-year, $1.325 million deal.

Update: Two years, $3.05 million for Lewis, per LA Kings Insider — a $1.525 million annual cap hit.

    yeah say, kings may be playing in calgary with a different man behind the bench

    it would appear darryl went home to the family farm in viking where he found himself as most kings supporters would expect, outstanding in his field … helping brother brent castrate spring calves

    if you’ve ever been married i’m sure you’re familiar with both concept and methodology …

    small rubber ring stretched over an inverted pair of specialized pliers called an elastor tool with ring slipped over testes after which the ring is relaxed and elastor tool retracted … in a week or so plop plop fizz fizz

    well before you can say bob’s your uncle the boys were rehashing darryl’s painful separation from the flames when brent broke family solidarity by staying … words were exchanged then why i oughtas were exchanged then a furious shoving match ensued thennnnnnnnn

    well long story getting shorter …

    kings may be playing in calgary with a different man behind the bench

      What are you smoking?

      “if you’ve ever been married i’m sure you’re familiar with both concept and methodology”

      Yes friend, I’m only too familiar with this cruel practice, courtesy of my ‘ex’ # 2 in LA (aka Lucifer). Thank God however, I managed to escape ‘unharmed’ and lived to tell the tale ! :) As for Darryl and Brent, I didn’t realize there was still a rift between them ? Hopefully they’ll be able to ‘patch it up’ at some point eh ?

    Great signing, such an underrated player.

    Let’s go Kings!

    Underrated??? I’ve seen some stupid comments before, but holy puck man!

    He was a first round draft pick and just scored a “CAREER-HIGH” SIX goals!!!

    That is a bust…not “overrated.”

    Maybe he has a role he plays very well, but as a 1st round draft pick, he should be more than a 4th liner scoring 6 goals.

    That is a bust…not “underrated!”

    (Sorry, meant that not “overrated.” Lmao.)

    Stransky: what’s wrong with you man ? … are you sick or something ?

    Shnooks: baaaaa !

    Blomfeld: oh boy, it looks like they’ve paired us up with some kind of a nut case ?

    Shnooks: baaaaa !

    Course Marshall: what the hell’s going on here ? … why are you guys holding everything up ?

    Shnooks: baaaa !

    Stransky: it’s this freak you’ve paired us up with … he just keeps saying ‘baa’ for some reason ?

    Shnooks: baaaaa !

    Course Marshall: security, get over here asap ! … we’ve got a ‘live’ one !

    Shnooks: baaaaa !

    As a 30 year fan I don’t get this. He is fast as F but has no puck skills. 6 goals is garbage for a guy with those kind of wheels and Ice time. Lewis couldn’t put a puck in the ocean on a semi- regular basis, let alone 1.5 million a years worth in the net.

    Go KINGS GO.
