Eddie Lack (illness) didn't join the Hurricanes for Monday's practice.

Lack also missed Saturday's game for the same reason. It remains to be seen if he'll be up to playing on Tuesday.

Jorge Alves was gifted a dream come true during Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Lightning.

After the puck was iced with 7.6 ticks to go, coach Bill Peters put Jorge Alves in net to finish the game. He didn't face any shots but it was a dream come true all the same, and a very kind gesture from the veteran coach. Check out the link below for a highlight.

Jorge Alves, the Hurricanes' equipment manager, will backup Cam Ward on Saturday instead of Eddie Lack who is out sick.

Alves has signed an emergency PTO with the team whom he's been working with since on a full time basis as an equipment manager since 2012-13. He spent 2005-07 in the ECHL with South Carolina, Greenville, Charlotte, and Pensacola where he played only a handful of combined games.

With Eddie Lack out sick for Saturday's match with Tampa Bay, the Hurricanes have been forced to sign equipment manage Jorge Alves to a PTO and backup Cam Ward.

It's every teams nightmare, but hopefully Ward will at least be able to man the net from start to finish. Hopefully Lack will be feeling better by the time the Hurricanes take on the Devils on Tuesday.

There's a chance that Eddie Lack could start in Saturday's game.

That hasn't been decided, but coach Bill Peters is entertaining the possibility. Lack returned from a concussion on Dec. 21, but he hasn't played since returning. His last start was on Nov. 6 and his workload is likely to continue to be very light as Carolina has taken to leaning heavily on Cam Ward this season.

Eddie Lack (concussion) has been activated from injured reserve.

He is ready to return from a concussion and will back up Cam Ward Thursday night against Buffalo. Lack hasn't been in the lineup since Nov. 10.

Eddie Lack has been placed on injured reserve with a concussion.

He hasn't seen any game action since Nov. 10 because of Cam Ward's hot streak and he suffered the injury at practice on Monday.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Sat, Oct 22, 2016 02:28:00 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.
