VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Vancouver goalie Roberto Luongo expects to return to the Canucks’ lineup soon and be ready to play for Canada in the Sochi Olympics.
Luongo took part in his first workout with the team yesterday since sustaining a lower-body injury Dec. 22 against Winnipeg.
“This is my first team practice, so I’m feeling good,” Luongo said. “Everything’s progressing really well right now.”
Luongo revealed how he got hurt, but wouldn’t disclose the extent of the injury.
