The Kings signed Trevor Lewis to a four-year extension worth $8 million ($2M AAV).
Lewis, 29, had eight goals and eight assists (16 points) in 75 games with the Kings last season. He has spent the first eight years of his NHL career with the Kings after being drafted 17th overall in 2006. He has 89 points (35G / 54A) in 424 career NHL games.
Lewis (upper-body) has been placed on IR, retro active to October 8th.
Lewis has missed the last three games with an upper-body injury and has yet to resume skating. The retroactive move means Lewis can play whenever he returns to full health, but for now he goes on IR to allow the Kings to recall a forward after finding out Marian Gaborik is out on Tuesday.
