Dallas Eliuk (born November 4, 1964 in Vancouver, British Columbia) is a former goaltender and assistant coach in the National Lacrosse League. Prior to starting his coaching career for the Portland LumberJax in the 2009 season, Eliuk played 15 seasons for the Philadelphia Wings before being traded to the LumberJax (per his request), where he played for three seasons. Eliuk won four championships with the Wings, two championship MVP awards, was named to the All-Pro team nine times, and retired as the league's all-time leader in saves.[1] Because of his success in Philadelphia, his longevity, and his unparalleled acrobatic athleticism, he is considered a legend in indoor lacrosse, and widely regarded as the best goalie to ever to play the game.[1]

Eliuk and Jim Veltman were inducted into the National Lacrosse League Hall of Fame in March, 2009.[2]

In January 2005, when the Wings were in Anaheim for a game against the Storm, several members of the team, including Eliuk, went to a taping of the game show The Price Is Right. Eliuk was chosen to participate, and won a world-map lithograph, some dinnerware, and an exercise machine. The episode aired on February 11, 2005.[3]

Eliuk married Portland radio personality Daria O'Neill on December 31, 2007. The couple welcomed their first child Alexander Charles Eliuk in May 2009.[4]
