WEST VALLEY CITY — More than 6,500 fans packed the Maverik Center on Thursday to celebrate Trevor Lewis — Utah's only native son to win the Stanley Cup — and see the one of the most famous trophies in sports.
Lewis, a Salt Lake City native who also played high school hockey for Brighton, and the Los Angeles Kings won this year's Stanley Cup playoffs. Although just in his second full year with the club that drafted him in 2006, Lewis played a big role in the Kings' surprising playoff run. He scored three goals, including two in the Stanley Cup Finals-clinching game against the New Jersey Devils.
"I didn't think it was going to be this big here, but it's awesome to see all the support I got," Lewis said after taking pictures with hundreds of Utah Grizzlies season ticket holders. "I'm happy I can share it with Salt Lake a little bit."
Each player from the Kings gets one day with the trophy. Lewis and the cup are scheduled to make an appearance at tonight's Utah football game.
