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

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.

— Islanders captain John Tavares
