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 feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
