Canucks' Edler, Luongo, Take Part in Full Practice


By on 1/13/2014 09:56:00 AM

The Vancouver Canucks have gotten some great news on the injury front, as both defenseman Alexander Edler and goaltender Roberto Luongo participated in the team's full practice on Sunday, as reported by Daniel Fung on the Canucks' official website. Edler took regular shifts during the practice session. Luongo took part in the full team practice and saw the majority of the work load during the scrimmage towards the end of the session.

"I had a good practice today and we'll see tomorrow," said Edler, who has been out since December 3 when he injured his knee in a game against Nashville. "Mentally, I'm ready."

In 27 games played, the Swedish Olympian has three goals and six assists, and is a minus-12.

Luongo, meanwhile, has sat out six of the last seven games. He was recently shelved after being hit by Kings' captain Dustin Brown.

In 33 appearances this season, the Canadian Olympian has a 2.24 GAA and .922 save percentage.

Both Edler and Luongo are joining the Canucks on their roadtrip, but there is no confirmation that they will be in the lineup.
