After starting The Hockey Factory in 2001, Lewis has helped develop players from the minor junior leagues to the NHL, with a focus on power skating and skill development. With over 20 years of experience, he joined the Brandon Wheat Kings (WHL) as a skills coach in 2018, using his passion for teaching and hockey to improve player development at the junior level.
