Benning confident Canucks can ‘get a fairly high draft pick’ for Lack or Markstrom

Jim Benning has had “lots of calls” about his goalies and is “confident” the Canucks “can get a fairly high draft pick” for one of Eddie Lack or Jacob Markstrom.

Vancouver’s general manager made those remarks last night on TSN 1040 radio, per Today’s Slapshot.

“When we decide which goalie we’re going to keep moving forward, then we’ll act on it and I think we’ll be able to recover a fairly high pick,” said Benning.

The Canucks don’t currently have a second- or third-round draft pick in this year’s draft.

Benning said he’d “like to add a second-round pick, if we could.”
