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." Jun 28 - 7:43 PM

Eddie Lack should be given the opportunity to start for the Carolina Hurricanes.

Lack, who was traded to the Hurricanes on Saturday, will battle veteran Cam Ward for the top spot in net. Ward is entering the final season of his long term contract and the Hurricanes picked up Lack to compete as he was 18-13-4 with a 2.45 GAA and a .921 save percentage for the Canucks. He will make only 1.3 million compared to Ward's $6 million this season so the Hurricanes could trade Ward and rely on Lack for the bulk of the work.

Chris Johnson of is reporting that Eddie Lack has been traded to the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Canucks will receive a third round pick on Saturday and a seventh round pick in the 2016 Draft. Lack will now be in competition with Cam Ward for the top job in Carolina, unless the Hurricanes try and trade the veteran Ward elsewhere. Lack was 18-13-4 in 2014-15 with a .921 save percentage and a 2.45 GAA.

G.M. Jim Benning has made it clear that he is looking to get some draft picks for this coming draft and Eddie Lack is clearly his best chip in net.

Bob McKenzie stirred up quite a bit of talk in Vancouver when he hinted that the Canucks would most likely move him. "I'm sure he'll get traded and I'm sure the Canucks will get a pick for him, but nobody is getting more than a pick." Meanwhile, Canuck's faithful fans have started an online petition to stop the trade. It will be interesting to see how it plays out and we will find out with the team really thinks of AHL standout Jacob Markstrom.

The Vancouver Canucks could deal either Eddie Lack of Jacob Markstrom if not both, in the off-season.

The Canucks are looking to replenish some lost draft picks as they are without a second and third round selection in the upcoming draft. The easiest way to do so may be to trade a goalie as they have Ryan Miller as their starter in addition to Lack and Markstrom. Stay tuned.

Eddie Lack allowed three goals on seven shots and got the hook after one period in Game Four of Canucks series with Calgary on Tuesday.

He wasn't at fault for the first two power-play goals he let in but the third goal was one he would have liked back off the stick of T.J. Brodie. The move to Miller was most likely a move to give the Canucks some kind of boost going in the third period. Ryan Miller makes his first appearance in the playoffs.

Eddie Lack will get the start in Game Four against the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night.

Lack has turned away 74 of 81 shots through the first three games of the series, in which the Canucks trail 2-1. He also has four career regular season starts versus Calgary, posting a 3-1-0 record with a shutout and six goals against.

Eddie Lack allowed four goals on 27 shots in Sunday's 4-2 loss to Calgary.

The Canucks now trail the Flames 2-1 in the series. It's the first time in the series that Lack has allowed more than two goals in a game. Calgary scored two goals on Lack in the first period, and two more in the third period. It will be interesting to see if Vancouver will turn to Lack for game four or if they will go to Ryan Miller.
Apr 20 - 12:56 AM

Eddie Lack will get the start in Game Three on Sunday night against Calgary.

With the series knotted at one, Lack will look to help his Canucks take their first lead of the series. Lack has turned away 50 of 53 pucks sent his way, and could have conceivably led his team to a Game One victory had it not been for Kris Russell beating him with less than 30 second left.

Eddie Lack was not happy that Brandon Bollig had him down on the ice in the second period and took his time getting up.

"I kind of lost it a little bit because Bollig kind of had me in a choke hold and that usually doesn’t happen," Lack said. "So I lost it a little bit but I took a minute and I tried to focus on my breathing and everything." Lack should get the start in Game 3 as he has given up only three goals over two games and Ryan Miller is very rusty at this time.
Apr 19 - 9:12 AM

Eddie Lack made 22 saves and recorded his first career playoff victory on Friday night, 4-1 over Calgary to tie the series at one.

Lack was simply sensational, stopping 19 of the 20 shots he saw over the final 40 minutes. It seems safe to say that it's Lack's crease until he shows that he's unfit to guard it.
Apr 18 - 3:24 AM

Eddie Lack will get the start in Game Two on Wednesday night against Calgary.

Lack was solid in Wednesday's 2-1 Game One loss but he did 28 saves. While Lack has dropped each of his last two games versus Calgary, he boasts an overall record of 3-2-0 with a shutout and eight goals against on 130 combined shots.
Apr 17 - 5:55 PM

Eddie Lack turned aside 26 shots but it wasn't enough in Vancouver's 2-1 series opening loss to Calgary on Wednesday.

Lack was spotted the one goal lead but couldn't hold off the pesky Flames who came hard in the third period and beat him for two goals. It was the 27 year-old's NHL playoff debut and he showed no real signs of nerve as the net appears to be his for the time being while Ryan Miller gets back up to speed. It will likely take a big momentum change or a questionable start to pry Lack from the net at this point. This wasn't it.
Apr 16 - 1:34 AM

Coach Willie Desjardins has confirmed that Eddie Lack will be in goal for Game 1 against Calgary.

It was expected that Lack would start the playoffs even though Ryan Miller returned to action in Vancouver's regular-season finale. Miller allowed five goals on 28 shots to Edmonton in a 6-5 overtime win. Lack has played well for the Canucks since Miller got injured.
Apr 15 - 2:07 PM

Eddie Lack is slated to get the start in the first game of the playoffs.

Ryan Miller is getting his first start since February 21 on Saturday but he is rusty at this time so the Canucks will go with Lack to start. Lack is 18-13-4 with a 2.45 GAA and a .921 save percentage.
