Photo Gallery: Kyle Clifford vs Trevor Lewis

Following a format we used yesterday as a final goodbye to the CHL and the time Alec Martinez spent there with the Allen Americans, here’s a quick recap of Kyle Clifford and Trevor Lewis in the ECHL (for anybody who wasn’t paying much attention during the NHL lockout).  The story culminates with the two of them facing off last Friday night, Clifford playing for the Ontario Reign and Lewis for the Utah Grizzlies…

And finally, the photo gallery from Clifford v Lewis (Utah at Ontario):

Lewis finished the game with a pair of goals, but the Reign came out on top by a final score of 6-4. Back in the locker room after things were over, the chirping didn’t stop.

Clifford told MayorsManor, “The first thing he [Lewis] said to me was ‘Don’t hit me!'”

Regarding the idea of Lewis challenging him to a fight, Clifford quipped, “He’s all talk.”

For his part, Lewis remarked how “weird” it was to see Clifford on the other side of the ice during the game, but noted they didn’t have too many opportunities to hit each other with the puck in play. Instead, between whistles, Lewis said at one point they found themselves asking, ‘Who would have ever thought this would be happening?’

With it all behind them now, they probably hope it was the last time for many years to come.
