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 remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
