I was just looking around for something to write a story on, and this press release from today was the top headline on the Canucks official website:

Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks President and General Manager Mike Gillis announced today that the Canucks have re-signed goaltender Eddie Lack.

Lack, 24, appeared in 46 games with the AHL Chicago Wolves in 2011.12 finishing with a record of 21-20-3. The Norrtalje, SWE, native finished the season with a 2.31 GAA, ranking ninth in the AHL in that category. In five Calder Cup playoff games last season, he posted a 2.17 GAA to rank seventh among AHL goaltenders in the playoffs.

The 6’5", 197 lbs. goaltender was originally signed by Vancouver as a free agent on April 6, 2010.

Eddie was one of our RFAs in the AHL level this summer, which is probably why almost none of us realized his contract was up. According to TSN, the first year is a 2-way with a worth of $650,000 in the NHL and $85,000 in the AHL, and the 2nd year is a 1-way worth $850,000. In response to his new contract, he is already celebrating on Twitter:

Can't wait to the again! and more... ur a coach now. Have fun watching video

If anything else happens in the goaltending ranks for Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider before a new season starts (not going to say pre-season or regular season yet, that's up to the NHL and NHLPA), he could be ready to come to Vancouver pretty soon.
