The Vancouver Canucks have re-signed goaltender Eddie Lack to a two-year extension. 

Lack's deal is a two-way contract in the first year that pays him $650,000 at the NHL level and $85,000 at the AHL level. He has a one-way deal in the second year that will pay him $850,000.

The 24-year-old Lack appeared in 46 games with the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League last season, finishing with 21 wins, 20 losses and three ties. The native of Norrtalje, SWE, finished the season with a 2.31 goals-against average, ranking him ninth in the AHL in that category.

In five Calder Cup playoff games last season, he posted a 2.17 GAA to rank seventh among AHL goaltenders in the playoffs.

Lack was originally signed by the Canucks as a free agent on April 6, 2010.
