Canucks and Beyond

And then the news wasn't so good...

Coincidence or cosmic bad humor? Earlier today Roberto Luongo was named captain of the Vancouver Canucks, rather against the odds. Which made it a pretty good day for the celebrated goalie—except for this:

On the same day that the Vancouver Canucks named him team captain, Luongo suffered a minor groin injury during practice.

Luongo suffered the injury after colliding with forward Jannik Hansen.

Poor Louie. It’s possible that being captain of the Canucks has a curse something close to being featured on the cover of an EA Sports video game.

Luongo will be out for the next game, which is “precautionary” says TSN.

In other news, Jannik Hansen will probably be hiding in his locker until the building clears.
