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

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
