Eddie Lack on Friday signed a two-year contract extension with the Vancouver Canucks. Financial terms of the deal were not released, but TSN reported Lack will make $1 million in 2014-15 and $1.3 million in 2015-16.
Lack could have become a restricted free agent in July.
In five games, Lack, 25, is 2-2-0 with a 2.41 goals-against average and .911 save percentage.
Prior to this season, Lack had spent the previous three in the American Hockey League.
I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
