Player evaluation: Fraser

COLIN FRASER This season: 33 games, 0 goals, 2 assists, 2 points, 30 penalty minutes, -4 rating, 8:59 time on ice The good: Three of Colin Fraser’s six NHL seasons have resulted in Stanley Cups. He played in championships at the major junior level and won a gold medal at World Juniors. Perhaps not to the same degree as Mike Richards, who has won playoff series and championships at every ...

Player evaluation: Brown

DUSTIN BROWN This season: 79 games, 15 goals, 12 assists, 27 points, 66 penalty minutes, +7 rating, 15:50 time on ice The good: Any distress over Dustin Brown’s clunker of a regular season was silenced during a postseason campaign in which he served as a load-bearing component of the team’s emotional and resilient constitution. The Spring of Intangibles was reflected in every player, but perhaps none more so than Brown, ...

Player evaluation: Lewis

TREVOR LEWIS This season: 73 games, 6 goals, 5 assists, 11 points, 6 penalty minutes, -1 rating, 13:15 time on ice The good: There’s nothing flashy about Trevor Lewis’ game, and that’s meant complementary. A blue collar, responsible forward who has provided the Kings tough minutes – if not consistent production – in his four full years with the club, Lewis is a player who is still doing things to ...
