Evaluating the Rookies with Trevor Lewis

Continuing with our exclusive multi-part series, several Kings will be stopping by to discuss their personal selections for the team’s top rookie.

We’ve already heard from Jonathan Bernier and Kyle Clifford. Now let’s see what Trevor Lewis is thinking…

On Bernier – “Bernie – he’s confident, quiet confident.  And he’s so calm in the net, he’s been huge for us in there when Quicky needs a break:”

On Clifford – “What else can you say about the guy?  He’s 20 years old and he’s one of the toughest guys I know.  He’ll do anything for the team – he’ll block shots, he’ll fight, he scores, pitches in every now and then.  I can’t say anything more about him.”

On Alec Martinez. – “He’s been great for us, especially on the power play.  He really uses his speed to get out trouble.  He’s really been a big asset and help on the back end.”

MM: You can’t vote for yourself, so who would you pick as the best rookie this season?

“Can I give it to all three of them? I don’t think I can pick just one,” Lewis said.  Then, after a little prodding to not take the safe route, he added “I’ll give it to Cliffy, my roommate. He’s really done anything the team needs him to. and he’s been great.”
