SALT LAKE CITY – Saturday night at the Staples Center, Salt Lake City native, and current Los Angeles Kings forward Trevor Lewis celebrated a remarkable career milestone by playing in his 900th NHL game, marking an impressive journey that has spanned over 16 years.
In a thrilling showdown against the Las Vegas Golden Knights, Lewis demonstrated his enduring dedication and commitment to the sport, and even scored a goal, his second of the season. The goal of course was a grinder’s goal, digging a rebound from in front of the net, like most of his 92 NHL goals.
