Report: Luongo Out 4-5 Weeks—Update: Week-to-Week

According to the en français stylings of Mathias Brunet at La Presse, there’s a press conference being held by the Canucks this afternoon at 2pm PT.

Brunet states that Luongo is

expected to miss 4-5 weeks

due to the groin injury suffered Saturday.  He quotes Luongo’s agent, Gilles Lupien, confirming this information.

More later.

Update 1:45pm PT: I’m told that the Canucks are likely not going ahead with any press conference at 2pm. (So my “more later” promise above may be on hold for awhile). Presumably they want to await the results of today’s tests before making a statement.

Update 2:14pm PT: TEAM 1040 apparently spoke with Gilles Lupien who stated that the La Press story is inaccurate. 

Update 3:37pm PT: Official from the Canucks via TSN

Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo has been listed as “week-to-week” after a meeting with team doctors determined the All-Star netminder suffered an abductor strain.

Update 6:51pm PT: Speaking at his press conference before tonight’s game, Luongo is staying pretty vague about the time his recovery is going to take. He does say the injury doesn’t feel nearly as bad as it did at first.  Anyway, “week to week” is all you’re going to get out the Canucks for now.
