SUNRISE, Fla. — 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.
Lack matched a career-high with 41 appearances last season and compiled a .921 save percentage to go with a 18-13-4 record.
The trade leaves Vancouver with goalies Ryan Miller and Jacob Markstrom on the roster for next season.
