The New Jersey Devils had been carrying three goaltenders on their roster since Cory Schneider returned from his hip injury, as even though Eddie Lack was on a conditioning stint he still counted towards the 23-man group. Now they’ve dealt with that situation, as Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports that Lack has been placed on waivers.

Lack, 30, never did get into a game for the Devils this season as Keith Kinkaid was instead given the starting role. The veteran backup has bounced around the last few years, and played in just eight games over the last two seasons. That’s a far cry from the 2014-15 campaign when he went 18-13-4 for the Vancouver Canucks and was among the league leaders with a .921 save percentage. Lack at that point looked like a goaltender who would lock down an NHL crease for years to come, but has since seen his performance decline rapidly.

Secretary of State Pompeo defends Iran sanctions -- and waivers -- amid criticism from both sides

Secretary of State Pompeo defends Iran sanctions -- and waivers -- amid criticism from both sides Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Sunday defended the White House’s move last week to reimpose sanctions against Iran amid criticism from some conservatives that the action does not go far enough to cripple the country’s economy. "The sanctions that will be reimposed tomorrow are the toughest sanctions ever put in place on the Islamic Republic of Iran," Pompeo said during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday." "They're aimed at a single purpose -- denying the world's largest state sponsor of terror the capacity to do things like the things they've done in the past few weeks.

The New Jersey Devils are a professional ice hockey team based in Newark, New Jersey . They are members of the Metropolitan Division of the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Eddie Läck (born 5 January 1988) is a Swedish professional ice hockey goaltender currently playing for the New Jersey Devils of the National Hockey League (NHL). Läck has previously played professionally in Sweden for Leksands IF of the HockeyAllsvenskan and Brynäs IF of the Elitserien.

There are teams who could take a chance on the 6-foot-4 goaltender though, as they deal with injuries or inconsistency from their own starters. Los Angeles, Arizona, Ottawa and others could all potentially use a veteran netminder to give them some more experience in the crease, and with Lack’s $650K salary he would cost just as much or less than their current options. Still, there have been other goaltenders like Anton Forsberg and Mike Condon who have passed through unscathed already this season for one reason or another, and Lack may experience the same. If he does, he’ll be solid depth for the Devils at the minor league level.

Devils' Vatanen lands on IR, Hischier out for 3rd straight game.
The New Jersey Devils are dealing with injuries to a couple of key players. Sami Vatanen was placed on injured reserve by the club Saturday, and Nico Hischier remains day to day, but isn't in the lineup for Saturday's matinee against the Detroit Red Wings, Devils head coach John Hynes told reporters pregame. Vatanen's IR designation is retroactive to Thursday, when he left a win over the Philadelphia Flyers with an apparent leg injury. He has to remain out for seven days from the retroactive date, meaning he won't play in the Devils' next three games, including Saturday's contest. Hischier has already missed two with what NJ.
