As scary as the situation was for Carolina Hurricanes goalie Eddie Lack, the good news continues to pour in.

This followed the promising sign that he was able to give a “thumbs up” gesture while being taken off the ice on a stretcher after the Hurricanes’ 4-3 overtime loss to the Detroit Red Wings.
The best news came late on Monday night, however, as Lack himself tweeted that he expects to head back home as early as this late evening/early morning:
That’s fantastic news. Video of that scary collision with Andreas Athanasiou can be seen in the video above this post’s headline.
