Trevor Lewis signed: 2 years, $1.45 million

The Kings announced that they have signed forward Trevor Lewis, who had been a restricted free agent, to a two-year contract worth a total of $1.45 million ($725,000 salary-cap hit per season). Lewis totaled three goals and 10 assists in 72 games last season and was considered most valuable for his versatility (he can play center and both wings) and his penalty-killing ability.

[UPDATE: The Kings have also signed Marc-Andre Cliche, Rich Clune, David Meckler, Andrew Campbell, Patrick Mullen and Jeff Zatkoff to one-year contracts. Among restricted free agents, that leaves Drew Doughty, Corey Elkins and Bud Holloway unsigned.]

[UPDATE 2: Corey Elkins' agent, Scott Norton, posted on Twitter that Elkins ``will not be signing back with the Kings for another season,'' and said Elkins might play in Europe. Elkins played three games for the Kings in 2009-10 (with one goal) and played with Manchester last season, with 18 goals and 26 assists in 76 games.]
