The Vancouver Canucks trade goaltender Eddie Lack to the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for a third round pick in 2015 and a seventh-round pick in 2016.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: Not the haul Canucks GM Jim Benning was looking for, as he reportedly sought at least a second-round pick in this year’s draft. However, he did lack a third rounder so he addressed that need. That means Jacob Markstrom will back up Ryan Miller next season.
As for the Hurricanes, ESPN.com’s Pierre LeBrun reports they could be trading Anton Khudobin later today. If so, that means Lack backs up Cam Ward for the final season of his contract, with a shot at perhaps becoming the full-time starter next season.
