Trevor Lewis C LA 16 Days

Lewis tallied the game-winning goal in Thursday's 5-3 triumph over the Senators.

Lewis' goal gave the Kings some needed cushion in a fast-paced third period that saw both teams combine for five scores. It marked the first point in nine games for the bottom-six forward.

Lewis scored a highlight-reel shorthanded goal and added an assist in Tuesday's win over the Stars.

Lewis and Jarret Stoll worked hard to generate a turnover in the Stars' zone, and then Lewis blew everyone's mind by chipping the puck over Jordie Benn's shoulder, picking it back up and pulling a shootout-type move on Kari Lehtonen. Later, he collected an assist when his strong shot was deflected in by Kyle Clifford. He's now got three points in as many games since being activated from injured reserve, but with a career high of just 14 points, it doesn't seem likely that Lewis will maintain anything resembling that pace. Still, the 27-year-old showcased some impressive skill Tuesday.

Lewis (upper body) has been activated from injured reserve, Helene Elliot of the LA Times reports.

After missing the Kings' last nine games with an upper body injury, Lewis is expected to return to the team's lineup when they take on the Red Wings on Saturday night. Lewis will resume his role as a center in the Kings' bottom-six upon his return.

Lewis (upper body) is expected to play Friday against the Red Wings, Jon Rosen of LAKingsInsider.com reports.

The Kings haven't officially activated Lewis from injured reserve, but his return was tipped off by the team's demotion of David Van der Gulik to AHL Manchester earlier in the day. Lewis hasn't played for the Kings since opening night against the Sharks, when he saw 10:29 of action as a center in their bottom-six.

Lewis (upper body) is nearing a return for the Kings and could return as soon as Thursday, the Los Angeles Times reports. "He's close. He wants to play," hed coach Darryl Sutter said Tuesday. We'll make sure he's ready in two days, not for a few minutes tonight."

The Kings played short-handed Tuesday with the injury to Anze Kopitar due to some salary cap space issues but hope to welcome Lewis back into the lineup Thursday.

Lewis (upper body) was a limited participant in Saturday's practice, Helene Elliott of the LA Times reports.

It's a good sign that Lewis has graduated from just skating on his own to participating in hockey drills, but he'll still need to get some full contact practice in before he returns to game action.

Lewis (upper body) skated on his own prior to Tuesday's practice, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Since Lewis' injury is to his upper-body, the fact that he's merely skating doesn't necessarily foretell an impending return. He'll need to take part in full-contact practice before any consideration for his activation from injured reserve will be determined.

Lewis (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Lewis hasn't resumed skating since suffering an upper-body injury last week's season opener. With Jake Muzzin and Marian Gaborik also day-to-day with upper-body injuries of their own, the Kings were down to just 20 healthy players and in desperate need of some reinforcement.

Lewis (upper body) will not play Saturday against the Coyotes, Jon Rosen of LAKingsInsider.com reports.

Lewis wasn't present at Friday's practice and appears doubtful to play Sunday against the Jets as well. With the fourth-liner still bothered by the upper-body injury, look for Jordan Nolan to see the ice in his stead.

Lewis is a regular fourth-liner for the Kings. Consider him day-to-day for now with an eye towards a possible return Saturday.
