With Scott Darling signed to a four-year, $16.6 million deal, Eddie Lack's future is very much in question.
Lack has a season left on his two-year, $5.5 million contract, but he's now third on the Hurricanes' depth charts behind Darling and Cam Ward. It's not clear how Carolina will approach the fact that it now has three goaltenders signed to one-way contracts for the 2017-18 campaign, but it wouldn't be surprising if they try to move Lack. If that's not successful though, they might end up buying out his contract or perhaps sending him to the AHL after training camp rather than carry three goaltenders. Lack had a 2.64 GAA and .902 save percentage in 20 contests in 2016-17, May 6 - 4:40 AM
