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

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
