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.

As the lockout continues to drag on and the league’s self-imposed deadline of September 15 comes all to near, Vancouver Canucks veterans Henrik and Daniel Sedin say they have no intention of leaving British Columbia to play overseas. With the Sedin family entrenched with commitments at home, they see no reason to play elsewhere.

I find it funny if not ironic that the Vancouver Canucks defenseman Kevin Bieksa would be on a committee of NHL players to look at diving and divers, when he's on a team that employs three of the biggest divers in the National Hockey League, Ryan Kessler, Maxim Lapierre, Alex Burrows, and lets not forget the Sedin Sisters who are also the kings of the...
