Best of luck to Lack!
Very unfortunate, all the best for him. Funny photo choice though, suggests no Lack of social media mentorship from Luongo.
Eddie Lack doing what he does best.... tweeting
ASU Sun Devil hockey. Honestly had no idea that was a thing.
They've quietly put together a competitive program. They finished #15 in the final poll last season and made the postseason bracket.
A few years back, they hosted the USTNDP (Keller/Bellows/Fox/Oettinger/etc) so I used that as an excuse to visit my buddy who had moved to Tempe. They're starting to attract some NHL prospects.
Joey Daccord was drafted by Ottawa, turned pro last season, and got into an NHL game. He was still using his ASU gear.
Austin Lemieux (son of Mario) is on the roster, Jackson Niedermayer is slated to start next year. I'm still hoping a couple Pac-12 schools will start up D1 hockey programs. Not sure what prompted it, but ASU is hosting Harvard for a pair of games in December at the Anaheim Ducks practice rink in Irvine.
Infrastructure has been steadily getting better in California, so it'd be nice to have some more local options if kids want to pursue college hockey. It was amusing, but my buddy had put a job offer on the table to a guy in Phoenix, but it was contingent on whether the guy's kid got drafted into the WHL (he didn't). [/coolstorybro]
So he's still trying to make the NHL?
Also that's pretty cool for the ASU goalies.
sucks, lack is a likeable guy
he’ll never again play in the nhl but its a nice thought
This seems in bad taste but you do you
Could he/social media person not find a more flattering picture of him?
Good luck to him in future endeavors, his pro career is probably over
He’s one of the good guys of the game. The struggles over the past few years make more sense now. Hope he does well in a coaching role.
He chose it and chose it for a reason.
"Hi, I'm Eddie Lack, a 31 years old professional sportsman telling you that due to health issues I will be missing the next season of $1M+ salary and quite possibly also all the following seasons after that. Please see the attached smiley picture of me."
Best of luck buddy. Hope the tacos are amazing out that way.
Now go live to reaction from Eddie Lack's dad
