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.

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.

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.
Apr 7 - 11:00 AM

Eddie Lack blocked 25 shots in Vancouver's 2-1 win over Los Angeles on Saturday night.

Lack gave up the lone goal with 28 seconds left in the second period with the Kings on the power play. The Canucks would score twice in the third period to win it. Lack has a 2.39 goals-against average and .913 save percentage this season. The Canucks are six points back of the Stars, who have a game in hand, for the final wild-card spot. Vancouver has four games remaining.
Apr 6 - 1:05 AM

The Vancouver Canucks will start Eddie Lack on Saturday.

Apr 5 - 3:18 PM

Eddie Lack blocked 28 of 31 shots in Vancouver's 3-1 loss to the New York Rangers Tuesday night.

Lack gave up one soft goal and he lost his third straight game for the Canucks. He now has a 15-16-5 record with a 2.43 goals-against average and .911 save percentage. He is still the number one goalie in Vancouver.
Apr 2 - 3:13 AM

Eddie Lack would probably like to throw out the game tape from the Canucks' 5-1 loss to the Ducks on Saturday night.

Lack gave up five goals on 21 shots in a night he'd easily like to forget. Despite his worst performance of the season, Lack has put together a decent season with a 2.41 goals-against average and .912 save percentage.
Mar 30 - 12:59 AM

Eddie Lack allowed three goals on 28 shots in Vancouver's 3-2 overtime loss to Colorado Thursday night.

Lack's three-game winning streak came to an end, but you can't blame Lack for that. He now has a 15-14-5 record with a 2.34 goals-against average and .915 save percentage. He is the probable starter for the Canucks on Saturday when they play against the Anaheim Ducks.
Mar 28 - 3:42 AM

Eddie Lack sticked aside 29 shots in the Canucks' 5-2 win over the Wild on Wednesday night.

Vancouver's playoff chances are thin, as it is four points off the wild card with more games played than any other team fighting for a playoff berth. Lack and the Canucks have now won three in a row. He has a 2.32 goals-against average and .915 save percentage this season.
Mar 26 - 10:06 PM

The Vancouver Canucks will continue to lean on Eddie Lack on Wednesday.

Mar 26 - 12:05 PM

Eddie Lack wasn't tested much in Sunday's 4-2 victory over the Sabres.

Lack faced just 18 shots in the contest, stopping 16 of them, and although he got off to a shaky start in the first period he eventually settled in to earn a win. His record is now 14-14-4 while his GAA is now 2.33 while his save percentage is .915.
Mar 23 - 11:01 PM

Eddie Lack will get the start against Buffalo Sunday night.

He is coming off a 30-save shutout win over Nashville on Wednesday and looks to be a good bet against the offensively-challenged Sabres. Make sure you have Lack in your lineup Sunday evening.
Mar 23 - 1:28 PM

First-year goalie Eddie Lack made 30 saves for his rookie-leading fourth shutout of the season in Vancouver's 2-0 win over Nashville Wednesday night.

Lack, who was making his 12th straight start, was forced to make his best three saves on Patric Hornqvist, including a couple of great point-blank chances late in the first period. It was a good bounce back performance for Lack, who gave up six third-period goals in a loss against the New York Islanders his last home game, and struggled at times during the recent road trip. He now has a 13-14-4 record with a 2.34 GAA and .915 save percentage.
