Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Eddie Läck
    TWENTIES
  • 2015
    Age 27
    On June 27, 2015, Läck was traded to the Carolina Hurricanes at the 2015 NHL Entry Draft in exchange for a 2015 third round pick and a 2016 seventh round pick.
    More Details Hide Details Läck is a big goaltender who uses his size to his advantage looking through traffic to see the puck, and aggressively challenging shooters. Despite his size he has good lateral movement, covers the bottom of the net well, has good balance, and is positionally sound.
    Eddie Läck recorded his first Stanley Cup playoff victory April 17, 2015, with a 4-1 victory over the Calgary Flames.
    More Details Hide Details Läck remained in net until he was pulled in Game 4 in Calgary, at which point Miller returned. The Canucks went on to lose their first round matchup with Calgary in 6 games.
    That summer, however, the Canucks signed Ryan Miller as their starter, but when Miller was hurt in late February 2015, Läck excelled and allowed the Canucks to maintain their playoff position, even starting the Canucks first few playoff games.

  • 2013
    Age 25
    He would record his first NHL shutout in his home ice debut against the Carolina Hurricanes on December 9, 2013.
    More Details Hide Details On March 4, 2014, starting goaltender Roberto Luongo was traded to the Florida Panthers, along with minor leaguer Steven Anthony, for Swedish goaltender Jacob Markström and forward Shawn Matthias, making Läck and Markström (who played together for Brynäs IF) the goaltending tandem for the Canucks, and making Läck an NHL starter for the first time in his career.
    Läck was named the Canucks' backup goaltender to start the 2013–14 season, and made his first appearance – and recorded his first win – on October 6, 2013, with a 5–4 overtime win against the Calgary Flames.
    More Details Hide Details On November 15, despite Läck having only made five NHL appearances to date, the Canucks re-signed him to a two-year contract extension worth a total of U.S.$2.3 million.
  • 2011
    Age 23
    He dressed for his first NHL game on November 16, 2011, backing up Cory Schneider in a loss against the Chicago Blackhawks before being reassigned the following day.
    More Details Hide Details He finished the season in Chicago posting a 21–20–3 record with a 2.31 GAA and a .925 save percentage. By season's end, he, along with backup Matt Climie, helped set a Wolves franchise record for lowest team goals against average at 2.54. Läck's second season with the Wolves started slowly, as his numbers dropped significantly from the previous season. He had been playing with a hip flexor injury and a decision was made to rest him to allow the injury to heal. The injury eventually required surgery which ended Läck's season. He finished the year playing in 13 games posting a 7–4–1 record with a 3.00 GAA and an .899 save percentage.
    Läck made his Wolves debut on October 8, 2011, stopping 31 of 33 shots in a 3–2 shootout loss to the San Antonio Rampage.
    More Details Hide Details He recorded his first win and shutout with Chicago three games later on October 21 against the Rockford IceHogs. The following month, Läck was called up by Vancouver after starting goaltender Roberto Luongo sustained an injury.
    Positioned behind Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider (joint winners of the 2010–11 William M. Jennings Trophy) on the Canucks' depth chart, Läck was assigned to the AHL for a second season in 2011–12.
    More Details Hide Details Due to the Winnipeg Jets' return to the NHL, the Moose franchise was relocated to St. John's, Newfoundland; as a result, the Canucks switched their AHL affiliation to the Chicago Wolves.
    Following the Manitoba's elimation to the Hamilton Bulldogs, Läck was called up to the Canucks on May 13, 2011, to travel and practice with the team as a playoff reserve.
    More Details Hide Details Vancouver advanced to the Stanley Cup Finals and lost to the Boston Bruins in seven games.
    During the 2011 Calder Cup playoffs, he helped the Moose to the second round, recording a 1.99 GAA and .932 save percentage in 12 games.

Assigned to the Manitoba Moose, the Canucks' minor league affiliate, he made his American Hockey League (AHL) debut on October 9, making 23 saves in a 5–2 win over the Rockford IceHogs. Competing for playing time with fellow Moose goaltender Tyler Weiman, Läck emerged as the team's starter, appearing in 53 games (28 wins, 21 losses and 4 overtime or shootout losses).
