The Vancouver Canucks are without the services of Roberto Luongo for over a week.

Canucks general manager Mike Gillis told the Vancouver Province that the All-Star goalie is expected to be out a week to 10 days with a suspected groin injury. He left a December 22 win over the Winnipeg Jets early after feeling discomfort.

Rookie back-up Eddie Lack will shoulder the load in Luongo's absence starting with Sunday night when the Canucks visit the Calgary Flames. Goaltender Joacim Eriksson has also been called up from the Utica Comets of the American Hockey League.

In 32 games this season, the 34-year-old Luongo is 16-9-6 with a 2.24 goals against average and a .920 save percentage.
