Carolina will have its regular goalie tandem back prior to the holiday break.

Eddie Lack, out since late November with a concussion, has been activated from IR and will rejoin the team ahead of tomorrow’s game against Buffalo.

In conjunction with the Lack news, the ‘Canes also announced that veteran netminder Michael Leighton has been reassigned to AHL Charlotte.

Lack missed the last 14 games with the concussion, and during that time Cam Ward started the majority of Carolina’s games, and fared well. So it’ll be interesting to see when the lanky Swede returns to game action, and how he fares.

Lack struggled to start this year and, at the time of his injury, had all but ceded the net to Ward.

Before the concussion, Lack played just twice in November — one was a 4-1 loss to New Jersey, in which he allowed three goals on 20 shots. The other was a 28-second appearance against Anaheim on Nov. 10.
