Players often have some of their best seasons in contract years, but Trevor Lewis posted another 12 point season, despite playing in 12 more games than the 2018-2019 season. Lewis, 33, has been a mainstay on the Kings roster, winning two Stanley Cups while chipping in two decisive goals in Game 6 of the 2012 Stanley Cup-clinching game.

But the Salt Lake City native tallied just six goals with six assists and a -7 rating while nearly doubling his shot percentage from a year ago. He’s no longer the shot blocker he once was, with a career-best 189 blocked shots coming in the 2014-2015 campaign.

Lewis is likely to walk in free agency this offseason, which is a bittersweet ending to a tremendous career in LA. According to Charting Hockey, he fell into the “Bad” category for production rates.

But the numbers are there, justifying Lewis to test free agency. He registered a 0.0 offensive point share and a 0.6 defensive point share this past season, so his best days are clearly behind him. Since the 2017-2018 season, Lewis has seen less and less average time on ice, and with the prospect pool coming, Lewis’ days with the Kings are over.
