VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Vancouver goalie Roberto Luongo expects to return to the Canucks' lineup soon and be ready to play for Canada in the Sochi Olympics.
Luongo took part in his first workout with the team Wednesday since sustaining a lower-body injury Dec. 22 against Winnipeg.
''This is my first team practice, so I'm feeling good,'' Luongo said. ''Everything's progressing really well right now.''
Luongo revealed how he got hurt, but wouldn't disclose the extent of the injury.
''It was an Evander Kane shot down the wing that originally got me a little bit,'' Luongo said. ''I tried to stay in the game a few more minutes and then kept feeling it during the play and felt it again on another shot.''
