Eddie Lack To The Carolina Hurricanes

Eddie Lack is on his way to Carolina as part of a shakeup in the Hurricanes crease.

The Vancouver Canucks are sending the 27-year-old goaltender to the Hurricanes in exchange for a third-round pick in Saturday’s draft and a seventh-rounder next year, according to two sources.

The Hurricanes currently have Cam Ward ($6.8-million) and Anton Khudobin ($2.5-million) under contract for 2015-16.

The Swede is a cheaper option — he’s owed $1.3-million in the final year of his deal — and could prompt a subsequent move for the Hurricanes.

 “Eddie is a big-bodied goalie who has proven himself on the NHL level in the past two seasons,” said Francis.
