Some more stuff:

Not sure Lack surgery changes much re Luongo trade. Think the #Canucks were always going to get a goalie back as part of package.

Difference now is any new backup would likely be here for this season and next. #Canucks

Vancouver Canucks General Manager Mike Gillis announced Tuesday that goaltender Eddie Lack had successful hip surgery.

“After consultation with our team physicians, it was deemed that Eddie Lack would require a procedure on his hip,” said President and General Manager, Mike Gillis. “We expect Eddie to make a complete recovery and continue his professional career after a successful rehabilitation program.”

The Canucks say Lack will miss six months, but should make a full recovery.

Lack hasn’t suited up for the Chicago Wolves since November 24th, going 7-4-3 this season with a 3.00 gaa and a .899 save percentage.

With a two-way contract this season, the news likely doesn’t affect any potential trade for Roberto Luongo as the Canucks didn’t expect Lack to suit up for the Canucks this season.
