Eddie Lack will be between the pipes for Vancouver Thursday against Anaheim.

Ryan Miller played in Wednesday's 5-4 win over Edmonton, so he'll get the night off. Lack's last start came versus the Ducks in a 2-1 shootout win back on Nov. 9.
Nov 20 - 2:19 PM

Eddie Lack stopped 28 of 29 shots he faced in Vancouver's 2-1 shootout win over Anaheim on Sunday night.

Lack also stopped all three of the Ducks' shootout attempts. The win is also Lack's first of the season. The 26-year-old was solid throughout the game. Lack kept the Canucks alive in overtime when he robbed former teammate Ryan Kesler in the final minute of play. Despite the great effort tonight, Lack is nothing more than Ryan Miller's backup right now. If Miller ever goes down to injury, Lack's fantasy stock would rise considerably.
Nov 10 - 12:10 AM

Eddie Lack stopped 30 of 33 shots in Sunday's 3-1 loss to Nashville.

Lack has yet to win a game this season. His record now falls to 0-3-0 and he has a disastrous 4.19 goals-against-average to go along with an .875 save-percentage. Ryan Miller is the goaltender worth owning in Vancouver.

It was a brutal game for Eddie Lack in Denver on Friday night, as he surrendered all seven of Colorado's goals in the 7-3 loss.

Six of the seven goals came at even strength as only Erik Johnson's scored Colorado's only PPG in the second to go up 3-2, and for good. Even though the Avs outshot the Canucks 47-28, Lack just stunk and his performance was the key difference in the game. And with Ryan Miller having played the previous night, the net was Lack's to make a statement with.

Eddie Lack struggled Saturday night, giving up four goals on 24 shots in the Canucks’ 4-2 loss to Tampa Bay.

This was Lack’s first start since April 7. He had a 2.41 goals-against average and .912 save percentage last season. With Ryan Miller in town, he’s probably due for 15-20 starts with the Canucks this year.
Oct 19 - 1:21 AM

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.
Oct 4 - 10:03 AM

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.
Oct 3 - 2:47 AM

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.
Sep 26 - 12:13 AM

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.
Jul 2 - 9:51 AM

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.
May 31 - 4:36 PM

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.
