Eddie Lack has given up only one goal on 83 shots in the pre-season.

That's mighty fine netminding but unfortunately, Lack has Ryan Miller in front of him this season and that should mean only 25-30 games for the Canucks number one goalie at the end of last season. He must have been disappointed when the Canucks inked Miller to a three year deal in the off-season but has played quite well thus far and that is good news for the Canucks who sent third goalie Jacob Markstrom to the minors last week.

Eddie Lack was nearly perfect in the win over Edmonton, stopping 21-22 of the shots he faced.

The lone goal was a Teddy Purcell dunk late in the first to open the scoring. Truthfully, it was Lack's defense that let him down there, as they allowed Edmonton to breakout with one stretch pass and chip it into the slot where Purcell shimmied right then dunked left.

Eddie Lack stopped all 20 of the shots he faced during his thiry minutes of ice time Thursday night in an eventual 3-1 win over Calgary.

Make that 36 for 36 in save attempts through 46 minutes of work this preseason. Lack may still be Ryan Miller's backup, but he's giving management and teammates plenty of reasons to believe in him.

Eddie Lack was very sharp in stopped 16 of 16 shots over 16 minutes of work in Tuesday's 4-2 split squad win over the Sharks.

Eddie Lack got the start and stopped all 16 shots he faced in his preseason debut. Lack combined with Joe Cannata to help Vancouver get the 4-2 win in the first split squad game with San Jose on Tuesday. Even though Lack showed he could play in the NHL as a rookie last season, he is firmly entrenched as the Canucks backup with the addition of Ryan Miller.

Vancouer GM Jim Benning thinks adding Ryan Miller will be good for Eddie Lack.

"If Ryan is our guy who is going to play the majority of the games, I think Eddie can look to him as a mentor," Benning said. "I think he can continue to grow as a goalie. Goaltending is a hard position. Goalies develop later. I don't think you know what you have with a goalie until they are 26 or 27." Lack is 26 and he played the first 41 games of his NHL career for the Canucks last season. He has two years left on his current deal before he becomes an unrestricted free agent and Miller is signed for the next three seasons.

Vancouver GM Jim Benning is open to upgrading his crease situation going into next year, so Eddie Lack and Jacob Markstrom could face some competition.

"We're going to look at every avenue we have to make our team competitive. Vancouver is a big-market city, we've got a passionate fan base, [and] our owners want to win," Benning told Sportsnet 590 The Fan. "I know they have a lot of confidence in Eddie Lack. For a first-year goalie last year, he had a good season, and we hope that he can take it to the next step this year." The Canucks could use a seasoned and proven netminder, but they would also like to add a scorer up front so a $2.35 million cap hit for its goaltending tandem might be an attractive option. Still, there will be plenty of names available in the open market this summer, including Ryan Miller, Jonas Hiller, Ilya Bryzgalov, Tim Thomas, Alex Stalock and Thomas Greiss.

Eddie Lack will not join Team Sweden for the 2014 World Championship.

Lack got a lot of work after the Canucks traded Roberto Luongo. Lack's also expected to start the 2014-15 campaign as the Canucks' starting goaltender and he plans to stay in Vancouver over the summer to train.
Apr 23 - 6:10 PM

Eddie Lack allowed three goals on 23 shots in Vancouver's 3-0 loss to Anaheim Monday night.

It was Lack's 19th straight start and his fourth loss in his last five games. The loss ended Vancouver's playoff hopes and maybe the Canucks can now give a chance for Jacob Markstrom to start a game. Lack now has a 16-17-5 record with a 2.41 goals-against average and .912 save percentage.
Apr 8 - 3:05 AM

Eddie Lack will get the nod on Monday.

It will be Lack's 19th straight start. While Vancouver hasn't been mathematically eliminated yet, they have been essentially out of the playoff race for a while now. Even if that wasn't the case, it's telling that Jacob Markstrom hasn't started in a single game since the Canucks acquired him from Florida.
Apr 7 - 11:00 AM

Eddie Lack blocked 25 shots in Vancouver's 2-1 win over Los Angeles on Saturday night.

Lack gave up the lone goal with 28 seconds left in the second period with the Kings on the power play. The Canucks would score twice in the third period to win it. Lack has a 2.39 goals-against average and .913 save percentage this season. The Canucks are six points back of the Stars, who have a game in hand, for the final wild-card spot. Vancouver has four games remaining.
Apr 6 - 1:05 AM

The Vancouver Canucks will start Eddie Lack on Saturday.

Lack has allowed 11 goals in his last three starts, but Vancouver seems determined to stick with him over Jacob Markstrom. The Canucks will play against the Los Angeles Kings.
Apr 5 - 3:18 PM

Eddie Lack blocked 28 of 31 shots in Vancouver's 3-1 loss to the New York Rangers Tuesday night.

Lack gave up one soft goal and he lost his third straight game for the Canucks. He now has a 15-16-5 record with a 2.43 goals-against average and .911 save percentage. He is still the number one goalie in Vancouver.
Apr 2 - 3:13 AM

Eddie Lack would probably like to throw out the game tape from the Canucks' 5-1 loss to the Ducks on Saturday night.

Lack gave up five goals on 21 shots in a night he'd easily like to forget. Despite his worst performance of the season, Lack has put together a decent season with a 2.41 goals-against average and .912 save percentage.
Mar 30 - 12:59 AM

Eddie Lack allowed three goals on 28 shots in Vancouver's 3-2 overtime loss to Colorado Thursday night.

Lack's three-game winning streak came to an end, but you can't blame Lack for that. He now has a 15-14-5 record with a 2.34 goals-against average and .915 save percentage. He is the probable starter for the Canucks on Saturday when they play against the Anaheim Ducks.
