RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

Subscribe now to see our 2016-17 outlook.

2015-16

After posting an impressive .921 save percentage in his second NHL season with Vancouver, Lack was dealt to the Hurricanes this summer in exchange for two draft picks. The 27-year-old has just 82 career NHL games under his belt, but heís proving to be at least a league-average fantasy option in the cage. Lack, who posted a 18-13-4 record in 2014-15, joins 2006 Conn Smythe Trophy winner Cam Ward in the Carolina crease. While Ward has long been viewed as the Hurricanesí starting netminder due to his massive contract, his inconsistent play the last few seasons has resulted in the 31-year-old seeing a decreased workload. Itís unrealistic to expect that Lack will have the starting role handed to him, but the Swede figures to receive an opportunity at some point to prove he's capable of being the man in Carolina. Ward showed flashes of excellence during certain stretches last season, so it wonít necessarily be easy for Lack to capture No. 1 duties, but if he's able to adapt to his new surroundings quickly and build off his strong sophomore season with Vancouver, he could certainly see an uptick in crease time in 2015-16.

2014-15

It looked like Eddie Lack would be Vancouverís starting goalie heading into the 2014-2015 campaign, but the offseason signing of former Vezina winner Ryan Miller puts Lack at the end of the bench once again. The 26-year-old Lack did fine in his first full season in Vancouver, posting a 16-17-5 record, .912 save percentage and 2.41 GAA. However, his slow transition into the NHL was thrown out the window following a blockbuster deal at the trade deadline that sent starter Roberto Luongo to the Florida Panthers. Lack proceeded to start the following 19 games, getting worn to shreds while managing only eight wins. Miller has been a workhorse historically, which figures to limit Lackís start total to less than 30 games this season, but he should at least give the Canucks a fighting chance when heís called upon.

2013-14

Lack missed most of the 2012-13 season with a groin and hip injuries, appearing in just 13 games for Chicago of the AHL before eventually undergoing season-ending hip surgery in January. Prior to last season, Lack had established himself as the best goaltending prospect in the Canucksí system by posting back-to-back stellar campaigns at the AHL level. The 25-year-old is expected to be at full health for the start of training camp and should be considered the frontrunner to earn the backup gig to Roberto Luongo if the Canucks donít bring in any outside help. Lack is a big (6-4, 187) goalie with solid skills who should one day have a shot at a starting gig in the NHL, but his immediate future will be receiving tutelage from Luongo.

2012-13

Back-to-back stellar seasons in the AHL have solidified Lack as the Canucksí top goaltending prospect. The 24-year old was strong in the crease for Chicago of the AHL in 2011-12, finishing with a 2.31 goals-against average and .925 save percentage. With little left to prove in the minors and Roberto Luongo expected to be traded before the start of the season, Lack might have an opportunity to make the Canucksí roster as Cory Schneiderís backup. His chances at a roster spot could change drastically if the Canucks bring in a veteran backup, but there might not be many options available if a Luongo trade isnít completed soon. The Canucks still havenít officially inked Lack to a contract yet for the 2012-13 season, but, as a restricted free agent, thatís a mere formality. He should be in Canucks camp come September and will likely make his NHL debut at sometime this season.

2011-12

Lack put together a stellar campaign with Manitoba of the AHL in 2010-11, finishing 28-21-4 with a 2.26 goals-against average and .926 save percentage. The 23-year-old twine tender is turning into a very solid prospect, but with Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider manning the net in Vancouver, he'll have to wait his turn in line before getting a shot at the NHL level. Deep keeper leagues that stash prospects should take notice.

2010-11

Lack, 22, was signed by the Canucks in April of 2010. The Swedish goaltender will need a couple seasons in the minors before factoring into the mix at the NHL level.
