    Hurricanes' Eddie Lack: Could take over as Canes' starter next season

    Lack finished the 2015-16 with disappointing numbers: a 12-14-6 record, 2.81 GAA and. 901 save percentage. Lack was brought in via trade from Vancouver to push Cam Ward for the starter's job this season, but he wound up playing mostly a backup role due to his poor play, and Ward's relatively better numbers. With Ward now eligible for free agency, it remains to be seen whether Lack will inherit the starting reins next season. Alternately, the Canes could still opt to bring Ward back for another kick at the can, or bring in some fresh blood via the free agent route. Either way, Lack is not considered a viable starting goalie for fantasy purposes at this time.

    Hurricanes' Eddie Lack: Protecting net Saturday

    Lack will defend the cage against Florida on Saturday. Lack has been off his game since the start of March as he's registered a 2-2-3 record along with a 3.07 GAA. In his one previous matchup with the Panthers, the 28-year-old allowed three pucks to find the back of the net on 29 shots. In terms of fantasy value, the goaltender's .903 save percentage and 12 victories makes him a mid-range option for you lineups.

    Hurricanes' Eddie Lack: Gives up five in ugly loss

    Lack saved 22 of 27 shots in Saturday's 5-1 loss to Columbus. Another ugly showing from Lack, as the netminder has allowed four-plus goals in four of his last six appearances. Even more disappointing, this was against the 24th-ranked offense, but it's not like he was helped by Carolina's attack (25th in the league), either. The 28-year-old backup has taken a step back this year, sitting at a 2.77 GAA and .903 save percentage to date.

    Hurricanes' Eddie Lack: Picks up another overtime loss

    Lack allowed four goals on 31 shots in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Islanders. Lack has been a part of three overtime games in March, averaging a paltry .891 save percentage and allowing all three to slip away. Overall, the netminder is 2-1-3 during the month, giving up 17 goals and unfortunately lacking the offensive support in the process -- not surprising for the 25th-ranked Carolina attack.

    Hurricanes' Eddie Lack: Penciled in to start Saturday

    Lack is the confirmed home starter against the Islanders on Saturday night. Lack was a busy man over his last two starts, halting 86 of 92 shots between the Penguins and Blue Jackets, respectively. Fantasy owners of Lack will welcome that many shots, provided the defense isn't leaky. Carolina is slightly below average in that department as it runs the 18th ranked defense in the NHL, whereas the Islanders are 11th in both offensive and defensive measures.

The Blue Jackets peppered Lack all night, who stood tall and finished the game with a .955 save percentage.

    Hurricanes' Eddie Lack: Will man the crease Thursday

    Lack gets the starting nod against Columbus on Thursday, Mike Maniscalco of 99.9 The Fan reports. Lack's start continues the two and two rotation currently be utilized by coach Bill Peters. The netminder has grabbed just one win in his last five outings while logging a 2.78 save percentage. At this point in the season, both teams are likely just playing for pride, although the 28-year-old will want to impress at the end of the season in hopes of earning more ice time next year. Lack will have a chance to make that good impression against a Blue Jackets squad that is averaging only 2.53 goals per night.

    Hurricanes' Eddie Lack: Under fire in Thursday's loss

    Lack made 44 saves against the Penguins on Thursday, but was also stuck with four goals and the loss. You can hardly blame Lack for taking this loss against a Pittsburgh team that put nearly 50 shots on him, with Sidney Crosby and Phil Kessel accounting for three of the goals. Still, the 28-year-old Swede has allowed 10 goals over his last three starts -- all losses.
