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.
