Our Take: Trevor Lewis is the first Utahn to be a Stanley Cup champion. And he did it in style, scoring two goals in Monday's L.A. Kings win over New Jersey.
He once told the Deseret News that watching the 2002 Olympics were what convinced him to become a professional hockey player Lewis lives in the Cottonwood Heights area during the off-season.
While post-title emotion can sometimes be over the top, or at least contrived, this one at cbssports.com looks real.
From the moment kids learn how to skate, they dream of winning the Stanley Cup.
For the next 10-plus years they spend countless hours in cars and buses, riding from town to town and to game to game, their parents and friends always there when they need them. So when that moment finally comes for the lucky few out there, those players are quick to revel in the joy with their families.
The emotion is incredible. Want proof? Here's Trevor Lewis -- who had two goals in the Kings' 6-1 win to clinch their first Stanley Cup in team history -- with his guests on the ice after the game.
