Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks President and General Manager Mike Gillis announced today that the Canucks have re-signed goaltender Eddie Lack.

Lack, 24, appeared in 46 games with the AHL Chicago Wolves in 2011.12 finishing with a record of 21-20-3. The Norrtalje, SWE, native finished the season with a 2.31 GAA, ranking ninth in the AHL in that category. In five Calder Cup playoff games last season, he posted a 2.17 GAA to rank seventh among AHL goaltenders in the playoffs.

The 6’5”, 197 lbs. goaltender was originally signed by Vancouver as a free agent on April 6, 2010.

Good. Excellent. I'm glad he's going to continue to develop with the Canucks. He's got a good set of tools for a NHL goalie.

Thank ****ing god.

Luongo on his way out soon? yes/no?

Edit: After now seeing the contract details, It looks like luongo could very well stay for the year.

Probably, but this has little to do with it.

I seriously doubt Gillis or AV want to go into the season with two goalies - neither of whom have been a NHL starter for a full season. That is Brian Burke's "MO".

If Luongo is dealt, unless Lack plays 'lights out' in preseason, Gillis will bring in a veteran goalie to backup Schneider.

agreed. Little to do with any Luongo trade.


Now if Lack signed a ONE way deal, then it'd be a little more obvious.


I think VAN will give Lack all the opportunities to make the team in camp, but doubt we see a Schneids/Lack combo as the go-to pairing in the season. I'll be surprised if we don't have a vetran backup (Luongo? )

Obviously, given that it's a 2 way deal for year 1... The fact it is a 1 way for year 2 does tell me they do expect him to back up soon though.

Finally some news.

Good news too.

Too bad it is looking ever so likely there won't be a season.

Depending on the new CBA, we will have him for another RFA contract. Very good news.

According to Ben Kuzma and News1130, the first year is 2-way at 650/85. Second year is one-way at 850.

With me being the first to quote that, this board appear to lack the desire to engage in more Eddie Lack puns.
