The NHL lockout has forced many Canucks fans to turn to the AHL affiliate Chicago Wolves for their hockey fix, and for many, this has yielded a valuable discovery. If you thought Cory Schneider was a likeable cat — and he is, to be certain — he’s got nothing on the next guy on the Canucks’ depth chart. Eddie Lack may be the Canucks’ third-stringer in goal, but when it comes to the Canucks’ all-Twitter team, he’s… well, actually, he’s still not the starter.
But he’s in the top two. Eddie Lack is a full-blown character.
Aw. R.I.P., Luc.
But! The Lack dance is a great deal less complicated than any of these superior dances, which makes it the ideal dance for a Youtube video competition. The Canucks are urging fans to upload video responses of them performing Lack’s game-winning dance for the chance to win a signed Eddie Lack Wolves jersey. Get all the details here.
In the meantime, here are some outtakes from creepily-moustachioed Lack’s super-awkward clip:
What a weird dude.
In closing, is it just me, or is Lack beginning to bear a weird resemblance to Chris Cooper’s John Laroche character from the film Adaptation?
That’s uncanny.Tags: Chicago Wolves, Eddie Lack, The YouTubes
