Luongo set to return for Canucks

Vancouver Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo will start Saturday against the Los Angeles Kings in his first game since sustaining a lower-body injury Dec. 22 against the Winnipeg Jets.

Luongo has been working out with goalie coach Roland Melanson and skated with the team Wednesday for the first time since the injury.

"I'm excited to get back on the ice. I feel good and I'm ready to play," Luongo told reporters.

Luongo is 16-9-6 with a 2.24 goals-against average, .920 save percentage and three shutouts in 32 starts this season.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
