Eddie Lack allowed three goals on 20 shots in Sunday's 4-1 loss to New Jersey.

The 28-year-old has certainly lacked poise this season, continuing right where he left off last year. With a 1-2-1 record, 3.80 goals against average and .856 save percentage, Lack will have to play better.
Nov 6 - 10:34 PM

Eddie Lack will face New Jersey on Sunday night.

Through three games Lack is 1-1-1 with 12 goals against and a dreadful .857 save percentage. We know that things will level out, but he's been a totally different goalie in Carolina than in Vancouver. Lack sports a .897 save percentage and 2.91 GAA in 37 games since coming east.
Nov 6 - 4:15 PM

Eddie Lack gave up six goals on 27 shots Saturday night as the Carolina Hurricanes dropped a 6-3 decision to the Philadelphia Flyers.

There is not a positive spin that can be put on a save percentage of .778. Lack has been all over the board in three games this season with save percentages of .871 and .923 in his first two contests. Fantasy players will want to wait for some consistency before adding him to any roster.
Oct 23 - 2:43 AM

Eddie Lack will face Philadelphia on Saturday night.

Lack has allowed six goals on 57 combined shots through his first two games of the season, but he's helped Carolina collect three of four possible standings points while in net. With a loaded schedule tonight, we'd recommend you find a more favorable matchup anyway.
Oct 22 - 2:28 PM

Eddie Lack turned aside 24-of-26 shots in Carolina's 4-2 win over Calgary on Thursday night.

It's Lack's first win in his second start of the season. After giving up a three goal lead to ultimately lose to his former team Vancouver in his first start, it's a nice bounce back. Lack has a 1-0-1 record with 3.00 GAA and .894 save percentage in two starts. He's expected to fight for the number one job this season again with Cam Ward.
Oct 21 - 12:15 AM

Eddie Lack will start for the Carolina Hurricanes Thursday night.

Lack kicked out 27 of 31 shots in a 4-3 overtime loss to Vancouver on Sunday. This will be his second start of the campaign as Carolina looks to earn its first win of 2016-17.
Oct 20 - 2:54 PM

Eddie Lack allowed four goals on 31 shots in the Hurricanes' 4-3 overtime loss to Vancouver on Sunday night.

Lack and the Canes jumped out to a 3-0 lead but crumbled in the second half of the game. Lack, who played two seasons for the Canucks, had a mediocre 2015-16 in Carolina and didn't get off to a good start this time around.
Oct 17 - 12:48 AM

Eddie Lack will face his former Canucks club on Sunday night.

Lack played in 41 games in each of his two seasons with Vancouver. He accumulated a 34-30-9 record with a .917 save percentage and 2.43 GAA over that span, which speaks to high praise Carolina received in acquiring him for last season. However Lack posted a .901 SV% and 2.81 GAA in 34 games in his first season with the Hurricanes. Normally we'd encourage you to find a more favorable matchup but with just three games on today and Lack likely the only starter on your waiver wire, you might as well roll the dice if you need to make up ground.
Oct 16 - 12:03 PM

With Cam Ward back in the fold for another two seasons, it is expected that the Hurricanes will look to trade Eddie Lack.

GM Ron Francis should be seeking another netminder via trade or free agency to compete for playing time with Ward. Lack struggled in 2015-16 with a 2.81 goals-against average and a .901 save percentage. Carolina probably won't use the same tandem again next year.
Jun 20 - 8:46 AM

Eddie Lack couldn't handle the Panthers, as they thrashed him for four goals on 20 shots.

The Hurricanes would go on to fall 5-2. Lack finishes a miserable season 12-14-6 with a 2.81 GAA and .901 save percentage.
Apr 10 - 12:09 AM

Eddie Lack will face Florida on Saturday night.

Through 33 games and 30 starts this season, Lack has posted a 12-13-6 record with a .903 save percentage and a 2.77 GAA. Not exactly what Carolina was hoping for.
Apr 9 - 1:18 PM

Eddie Lack yielded five goals on 27 shots in the Hurricanes’ 5-1 loss to the Blue Jackets on Saturday night.

It’s probably best he throws out the tape of this one. Or maybe just the shots against Brandon Saad as he had three. Lack has given up at least four goals in three of his past four starts. He has a 2.77 GAA and .903 SV%.
Apr 2 - 10:32 PM

Eddie Lack will be between the pipes Saturday.

Lack lost a 4-3 overtime game to the Islanders in his last outing a week ago. He is 12-12-6 this season with a 2.70 GAA and a .906 save percentage. Use your own judgement as to whether or not to start Lack but if you have other choices, look at them.
Apr 2 - 11:43 AM

Eddie Lack saved 33 of 37 shots in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Islanders.

Lack surrendered two goals on 10 shots in the first period. He's now allowed 10 goals in his last three starts, but in his defense he's had to face a staggering 123 shots over that span.
