Goalie Eddie Lack stopped 16 shots as he and the Carolina Hurricanes took a 4-1 loss to the visiting Anaheim Ducks Monday night.

Lack is not having much success with the Canes and is a goalie to stay away from in fantasy play. His record is 1-4-0. His goals-against average is 3.37 and he has a not-too-impressive save percentage of .861. Lack, you could say, is lacking in Carolina.

Eddie Lack was yanked in the second period after giving up four goals on 13 shots in a loss to the Sharks on Saturday night.

Lack was making his second start as a Hurricane, and first since Oct. 13. He did himself no favors in earning more time after this performance. This season, he has stopped 35 of 42 shots. Cam Ward made seven saves in relief.

Eddie Lack allowed three goals on 29 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Florida Panthers.

This was Lack's first regular season game as a member of the Hurricanes. The two teams entered the third period tied at one, but Connor Brickley and Aleksander Barkov both beat Lack in the final frame. Expect Cam Ward and Eddie Lack to share the crease for the majority of the season. With the 'Canes in the middle of a rebuild, you should avoid starting their goaltenders on your fantasy team.

Eddie Lack will get the call against Florida on Tuesday night.

It will be his first start of the regular season with the Hurricanes. Cam Ward has two losses along with an .864 save percentage and a 3.08 goals-against average to start the season, Lack could earn himself another start if he performs well versus the Panthers.
Oct 12 - 1:36 PM

Although Eddie Lack will start the season as the backup goaltender, he has a great opportunity to steal the number one job this season.

Cam Ward is in the last season of his contract, so the Hurricanes have no long-term incentive to keep going back to him if he struggles out of the gate. In fact, from a business standpoint, if there's a bias it would be towards Lack stealing the job from Ward. That would allow them to justify letting Ward walk while Lack becomes the undisputed top goalie with a very affordable $2.75 million annual cap hit for the 2016-17 and 2017-18 campaigns.
Oct 6 - 9:05 AM

The Carolina Hurricanes signed goalie Eddie Lack to a two-year, $5.5 million extension on Saturday.

That's an interesting development coming on the news that Cam Ward is expected to begin the season as the starter. Does this mean that the organization is transitioning to Lack? It's difficult to gauge his value in 2015-16.
Oct 3 - 4:51 PM

With the commencement of Hurricanes training camp, the battle for the starting goalie role begins between Eddie Lack and Cam Ward.

"Each year everyone said I’d get 20, maybe 25 games," Eddie Lack said, "and I ended up playing 41 games both years." Lack managed to put up an 18-13-4 record with a 2.45 goals against average and .921 save percentage last year, and will have the chance to unseat the veteran Ward, who won a Cup with the Canes in 2006. Both goalies are entering the final year of their contracts, and will be trying to prove to GM Ron Francis they are the Canes' goaltender of the future.

Eddie Lack said he's excited to join the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Hurricanes acquired Lack from the Canucks on draft day. "Carolina really wanted me," Lack said on a conference call. "It’s a great opportunity for me, and I’m really excited. I matured as a person. From a goaltending standpoint, I feel like I’ve gotten so much better. To be honest, I still feel like I have a lot to give. I feel like I’m two or three years away from my prime. I’m never satisfied. I keep pushing forward, and that’s what’s going to help me in the long run."
