10 reasons why Flames fans will fall in love with Eddie Lack

Jul 3 2017, 6:17 pm

Get ready for the Lack Dance, Calgary!

Among the newest Flames this offseason is Eddie Lack, acquired just last week from the Carolina Hurricanes.

The presumed backup to fellow newcomer Mike Smith, Lack has a career .911 SV% and 2.56 GAA over 135 career NHL games.

The 29-year-old also has – perhaps more importantly – a tremendous personality. His interactions and bonds with teammates are plentiful, and well-documented on Twitter.

He is a lover of many things: his family, dogs, Christmas, and of course… tacos!

Here are just 10 of the many reasons Flames fans will fall in love with Eddie.

1. He’s already embracing his new team

2. …and he’s very sorry about earlier

3. His unrivalled love for tacos

It’s a well-known fact at this point.

Everybody loves tacos, but nobody loves them more than Lack.

4. His Halloween costume

One question: how can he top that for Halloween this year?

5. He’s always smiling

No lack of smiles from Lack!

6. He’s got a cute dog

Cute dogs are always a nice bonus.

7. He loves everyone

…even those he has to share the crease with.

8. He found a way to shut down Ovechkin

9. He’s just so pure

Seriously, how many NHL players do you know that start their day with a “Good morning world” selfie on Twitter?

I only know one.

10. The Lack Dance

And of course, one of the great benefits to having Lack on board is getting to see the Lack Dance after every win!
