Lewis registered a short-handed goal on three shots in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Calgary.
Lewis beat David Rittich with a snap shot from the slot 6:40 into the first period for his first goal in a Winnipeg uniform. The longtime King had 12 points in 56 games last season, his final one in Los Angeles, and provides Winnipeg with a veteran role player in its bottom six.
Lewis inked a one-year, $750,000 contract with Winnipeg on Wednesday.
After 12 years playing for the Los Angeles Kings, Lewis was able to parlay his PTO into a one-year pact with Winnipeg. In 56 games last year, the veteran winger tallied six goals and six helpers and figures to provide a similar level of production while filling a bottom-six role for the Jets.
Lewis (undisclosed) made his training camp debut Wednesday, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports.
Lewis missed the first two days of practice with an undisclosed issue, but his presence on the ice Wednesday suggests he should be good to go for the rest of camp. The 33-year-old forward, who picked up 12 points in 56 games with the Kings last campaign, is attending Winnipeg's camp on a professional tryout contract, so he'll need to impress in order to secure an NHL deal for the 2020-21 season.
Lewis will be unfit to practice for the second straight camp session for undisclosed reasons, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Considering Lewis wasn't added to the roster on a professional tryout until Jan. 1, it's possible the veteran center is still fulfilling his quarantine requirements. Every missed day of camp will no doubt hurt Lewis' chances of making the Opening Night roster against the Flames on Jan. 14. If Lewis does make the team, it will probably be a one-year contract that sees him fill a bottom-six role.
Lewis will join the Jets on a professional tryout agreement, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports.
Lewis will be donning a new sweater for the first time in his career having spent the past 12 seasons playing for the Kings. During his run in Los Angeles, the 33-year-old center recorded 70 goals and 93 assists while adding another 23 points in 79 postseason contests. The two-time Stanley Cup champion will need to beat out the likes of Nate Thompson and Dominic Toninato in order to secure an NHL contract.

Lewis matched his point output from last year with 12. He needed 56 games to reach that mark this season, compared to just 44 last year.

Lewis (upper body) will return to the lineup Monday versus the Blue Jackets, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Lewis has missed the last five games, but he's ready to return to the third line. The 32-year-old has accrued six points and 50 shots on net over 30 games this year, so his fantasy value in season-long leagues is negligible.

Lewis has missed the last three games, but his ability to practice without limitations signals he'll be ready to return soon. The 32-year-old winger isn't on many fantasy radars, as he's accrued just six points over 30 games this year, but he's a valuable veteran presence in the bottom six with 42 hits and 50 shots on net. Lewis could play in Tuesday's game against the Flyers, but he would need to be activated from IR first.
The Kings placed Lewis (upper body) on injured reserve Friday, Zach Dooley of LAKingsInsider.com reports.
The Kings have yet to release an expected timetable for Lewis' recovery, but he'll miss the team's next two games at a minimum now that he's been placed on IR. The veteran forward has only picked up six points in 30 games this campaign, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to track his status.
Lewis (upper body) is slated to miss Friday's game against San Jose, Ross McKeon of NHL.com reports.
Even the holiday break wasn't enough for Lewis to make his way back into the lineup, but there's no indication that he's expected to miss extended action at this time.
