The Vancouver Canucks have re-signed goaltender Eddie Lack to a two-year deal.

Never signed, Lack was originally signed by Vancouver as a free agent on April 6, 2010. He is a big goaltender who uses his size to his advantage looking through traffic to see the puck, and aggressively challenging shooters. Last season, while with the Chicago Wolves of the AHL, it was revealed that Lack had been playing with a hip flexor injury and a decision was made to rest him to allow the injury to heal, ending Läck’s season early. He finished the year playing in 13 games posting a 7–4–1 record with a 3.00 GAA and an .899 save percentage.

In five appearances this season, Lack has posted a 2-2-0 record and .911 save percentage. He’s expected to continue to serve as Roberto Luongo’s understudy for the duration of his new contract, but being just 25, he still has a chance to become a starter in the NHL.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
