The Vancouver Canucks have reassigned goaltender Eddie Lack to the Chicago Wolves.

LACK backed up the Canucks 5-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks Wednesday night after being recalled earlier that morning.

The 23-year-old netminder has notched a 2-3-2 record in seven outings with the Wolves this season. He ranks 12th in the American Hockey League with a 2.24 goals-against average and shares sixth in the league with a .927 save percentage.

The Norrtalje, Sweden, native shared first among AHL rookies and tied for fourth overall in the league with 28 victories and ranked seventh in the circuit with a 2.26 goals-against average in 53 outings with the Manitoba Moose last season. He posted a 28-21-4 record and shared fourth in the league with a .926 save percentage for the Moose during his AHL debut.

The Wolves conclude their five-game road trip with an Amtrak Rivalry matchup against the Milwaukee Admirals at 7 p.m. Fri., Nov. 18, at the Bradley Center. For information or to buy tickets to Wolves home games, visit chicagowolves.comor call 1-800-THE-WOLVES.
