Eddie Lack with a great comeback for those who used to chirp him

The former NHL goaltender doesn't hold back

Eddie Lack's NHL career wasn't really one for the ages. While playing for the New jersey Devils, Carolina Hurricanes and Vancouver Canucks, he backstopped himself to a record of 56-55-18 over 143 career NHL games. Since announcing his retirement from pro hockey after a hip injury, the 32-year-old has become a great follow on Twitter, though and his latest takes aim at those who used to berate him on social media after he lost a game. 

"One thing I don’t miss about playing is getting chirped on twitter after every loss," said Lack. "I mean if you’re so stupid to put me and your fantasy team I think that’s a YOU problem not a me problem." 

Lack didn't stop there. 

"All the people this tweet was suppose to reach probably got blocked 5 years ago." 

While all public figures need to have thick skin, the era of social media has greatly increased the reach and platform for those who spew negativity constantly. For a guy like Lack, who was likely blamed for many lossses, no longer having to deal with that must be a huge weight of your shoulders, whether you admit to letting it get to you or not. At least he's keeping a sense of humour about it. For that, we give him credit. 

In case you were wondering, Lack is currently a real estate agent in the Scottsdale Arizona region.
