Vancouver Canucks sign backup goalie Eddie Lack to a two-year extension

VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Canucks signed backup goalie Eddie Lack to a two-year extension on Friday.

The 25-year-old Swede made his NHL debut on Oct. 6 against the Calgary Flames, stopping 32 shots for his first career victory.

In five appearances this season, Lack has a 2-2-0 record and .911 save percentage behind Canucks' No. 1 goalie Roberto Luongo.

Prior to this year, Lack played three seasons with the Canucks' American Hockey League affiliates.

The six-foot-five, 196-pound goaltender was originally signed by Vancouver as a free agent on April 6, 2010, and could have become a restricted free agent this summer.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
