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.
He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
