Canucks return Eriksson to AHL
The Vancouver Canucks on Thursday sent goaltender Joacim Eriksson to their American Hockey League affiliate. The move likely means goaltender Roberto Luongo is ready to return to the lineup.

The Vancouver Canucks on Thursday sent goaltender Joacim Eriksson to their American Hockey League affiliate.

The move likely means goaltender Roberto Luongo is ready to return to the lineup. Luongo hasn't played since leaving the Canucks' game against the Winnipeg Jets on Dec. 22 in the first period with a lower-body injury.

Eriksson dressed as the backup to Eddie Lack the previous three games.

The Canucks next play Saturday at the Los Angeles Kings.

Quote of the Day

I mean, any of those 14 teams (in the lottery) it would have been an absolute honor. If I am selected by Edmonton it will be amazing, a dream come true. They have a lot of amazing young players there.
