Owen Sound had a game last night, and the game summary had a paragraph dedicated to Lewis. Thought I'd share with the group. Here is what's cool, though. Owen Sound lost the game last night, 6-4, to the league leading Barrie Colts. Lewis had one assist in that loss. That was it, but he apparently was such a standout player in that game that he still managed to get the second star in the game. Unbelievable. Lewis, as a rookie, is leading his team with 29 points (12g + 17a) and is a +5 in 19 games.
Attack top scorer Trevor Lewis has been playing just great for a number of games now. A special player that is so quietly slick, that fans should take the time to concentrate on him alone for a couple of his shifts to see just how good this kid is. He does it all and sometimes without notice. Trevor scouped up a puck in his own end and raced down the left wall. The length of the ice and around the Barrie net before backhanding the puck out to defenceman Dalyn Flatt. Dalyn nailed his 3rd of the season with the assists going to Scott Tregunna and Wayne Simmonds.
Hey I am a cop, and we are affectionatly known as pigs, I am just glad he is not out to destroy me.
Back to the topic. I love the Lewis pick and even if he turns out to be a third line center in todays league with a cap and the need to roll four lines a great roll player is just as valuable as an average scorer.
