Defenseman Dave Lewis was a tower of strength in his own end and moved the puck over to his more talented teammates effectively during his 15 years in the NHL. He was an important member of the New York Islanders when they became competitive in the 1970s and later helped solidify the blueline on three other teams.

Born in Kindersley, Saskatchewan, Lewis played junior with the Saskatoon Blades of the WCJHL. He was chosen 33rd overall by the New York Islanders in 1973 and made the jump straight to the NHL. He looked solid while playing 66 games as a rookie and remained with the club as rose to Stanley Cup contender status over the next six years.

A few weeks before New York launched its Stanley Cup dynasty, Lewis was sent with Billy Harris to the Los Angeles Kings for Butch Goring. He was an important defensive component on a club which had a host of offensive-minded forwards. In 1982, Lewis was a member of the plucky squad that upset the heavily favoured Edmonton Oilers in the first round.

Lewis joined the young New Jersey Devils for three seasons beginning in 1983-84. He was signed as a free agent by the Detroit Red Wings in 1986 and helped the club reach the semi-finals that spring. He retired after playing six games for the Wings in 1987-88.
