SALT LAKE CITY — Los Angeles Kings' Trevor Lewis, who grew up in Salt Lake City, announced on KSL 5 News he's sharing the Cup with Utahns at public events on Thursday, August 30th.

Stanley Cup tradition gives the Cup to each player on the winning team for 24 hours. Lewis will have the Stanley Cup on display, free to the public, at the Maverick Center in West Valley City from 12 Noon to 2pm on August 30th.

"It's important to me that everybody in Utah and Salt Lake City understand how grateful I am," Lewis said. "So many people here believed in me and helped me chase my dream."

Halftime of Utes' football opener

Lewis' Kings won their first Stanley Cup in franchise history two months ago and Trevor said, "It's been a blur ever since, but it is sinking in how fortunate I am to be part of something so special."

Lewis is the first native Utahn to have his name engraved on the most fabled trophy on professional sports.

To cap off Lewis' public sharing of the Stanley Cup, he will fly the Cup aboard KSL's Chopper 5 up to Rice Eccles Stadium to share it with fans at halftime of the Utah football teams season opener.

"That's going to be a blast. I used to go to Utes games when I was a kid. I only wish I had the Stanley Cup for two or three days so I could take it to the BYU and Utah State openers too, but having it one night means I need to enjoy it with my family and close friends too."
