LA Kings sign Trevor Lewis, six others – leaving only one

This must be contract week for the Los Angeles Kings.

Fresh on the heals of Brad Richardson signing a two-year contract with the team a few days ago, today it was announced they had reached a two-year agreement with Trevor Lewis and single year agreements with six prospects.

Of course, this also comes after defenseman Alec Martinez signed his own two-year deal last week, avoiding arbitration.

Martinez was leading Manchester (AHL) in points and assists when he was recalled to the Kings in late November. He went on to play 60 regular season games with the Kings (recording 16 points – 5g, 11a) and appeared in all six postseason games.

Richardson, a versatile forward who saw a little bit of time on each line last season, played 68 regular season games (recording 19 points – 7g, 12a). He also appeared in all six postseason games with the Kings, tying a club high with five points (2g, 3a) and leading the team with 17 shots.

Lewis, played in 72 regular season games for the Kings, registering 13 points (3g, 10a). During the playoffs his role with the team increased due to the injury of Anze Kopitar and one-game suspension of Jarret Stoll. He’s expected to center the team’s fourth line during the 2011-12 season.

In addition to the above NHL deals, the following prospects signed on for one more year – forwards Marc-Andre Cliche, Rich Clune and David Meckler, defensemen Andrew Campbell and Patrick Mullen, and goaltender Jeff Zatkoff.

All of those players will be given an opportunity to make the big club during training camp. However, they’ll most likely start the year in Manchester.

At this time, there is no new update on the Drew Doughty contract situation.

Well, except for the fact Columbus GM Scott Howson told NHL radio today that his team does not plan on offering Doughty an offer sheet.

Yeah, like that was going to happen.
