The Calgary Flames are trying to rebuild their forward corps after the departure of Johnny Gaudreau. 

That process began on Wednesday evening with the signing of Trevor Lewis, who agreed to terms with the Flames on a one-year contract worth $800,000. 

In his press conference to announce the organization's signings at the end of the day, Flames GM Brad Treliving described Lewis as a "glue guy of the team", highlighting his importance to the Flames roster behind the scenes since arrived in Calgary last summer. 

Lewis is a decent veteran player to keep around. The 35-year-old was a key depth piece for the Los Angeles Kings during their Stanley Cup championships in the early-to-mid-2010s, bouncing around the league in the years since 2019-20 before landing in Calgary. 

In 80 games last season, Lewis produced six goals and 10 assists for 16 points while logging a smidge under 13 minutes per night for a team that won its division and seemed poised for a deep postseason run. 

With the Flames organization desperately trying to pivot in the wake of their franchise face leaving town, Lewis can add some calm to an unsettled locker room and, in the event Matthew Tkachuk is dealt in the coming days as well, will be a good example to have around the litany of young prospects they receive for him.
