Canucks and Beyond

From Iain MacIntyre at the Vancouver Sun,
Vancouver Canuck goalie Roberto Luongo left the National Hockey League team’s intrasquad game injured after being hit on the collarbone or throat by Brad Isbister’s high shot.
Luongo, a finalist for both the Hart and Vezina trophies last season, lay facedown the ice for several minutes at the Memorial Centre in Victoria after getting beaned by Isbister late in the first period Sunday morning.
Holy hell. I was just joking about this the other day. Maybe this is payback…
On the other hand, why is it that Luongo’s own teammates KEEP TRYING TO KILL HIM?!?
(Dear Brad Isbister: This is no way to make friends in Vancouver.)
The final comment from MacIntyre’s story suggests Luongo will be fine…
Luongo isn’t believed to be seriously hurt, but the team will monitor him for any swelling that could restrict his airway.
... but that doesn’t make me feel much more cheerful.
Hopefully we’ll have updates later today or early Monday.
