VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- The Vancouver Canucks signed backup goalie Eddie Lack to a two-year extension on Friday.

The 25-year-old Swede made his NHL debut on Oct. 6 against the Calgary Flames, stopping 32 shots for his first career victory.

In five appearances this season, Lack has a 2-2-0 record and .911 save percentage behind Canucks' No. 1 goalie Roberto Luongo.

Prior to this season, Lack played three seasons with the Canucks' American Hockey League affiliates.

The goaltender was originally signed by Vancouver as a free agent on April 6, 2010, and could have become a restricted free agent next summer.
