MAN ROCKET (Per Urban Dictionary)
In hockey, a male player whose physical appearance and on-ice skills combined cause men and women alike to become aroused.
"You only have one life. Try to live to the fullest. Be happy for other people's success, support each other. Make each other better!"
Via Eddie Lack ~ Hockey Goalie, Goalie Coach, Philosopher and this weeks Man Rocket.
We think if Eddie didn't play hockey he would of been a Swedish DJ appearing at major venues with the likes of Alesso and Axwell.....but that wasn't the path that Lack pursued. Lack played 144 career games over 5 seasons in the NHL.....one Eddie Lack memory that we will never forget is when Canucks head coach John Tortorella surprised everyone and benched Luongo in favor of Lack for the 2014 Heritage Classic game against Ottawa.....Luongo was dealt to Florida two days later.
Eddie announced via his Twitter account in August 2019 that he was going to step away from the game due to nagging hip pain from the last 6 seasons and transition into the the new goalie coach at Arizona State University. We know Coach Powers quite well, and what an incredible find for ASU as this program continues to recruit, build and contend with the top schools in the nation. (Also, hat tip to our buddy Jon Laughner who has taken a few breakfast balls on the course with Eddie and enjoyed a couple yellow happy SAUCES on the 19th hole.)
