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 came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.
