Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo may be able to breathe a sigh of relief after suffering an ankle injury on Saturday.

According to TSN's James Duthie, early indications are that Luongo's injury is not serious and the MRI results were good. Renaud Lavoie of the Journal de Montréal reports Luongo is expected to be out 1-2 weeks.

Luongo was seen walking without a limp but the team is still awaiting word from the specialist.

The 34-year-old underwent an MRI Monday after missing the Canucks' 4-3 overtime loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday.

Luongo started for the Canucks in a 3-1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday after missing three games with a lower-body injury. He was knocked down in his crease by Kings forward Dustin Brown but finished the game with a 46-save performance.

The Canucks have recalled goaltender Joacim Eriksson from the AHL to serve as Eddie Lack's back-up in Luongo's absence.

The team had signed netminder Rob Laurie to a professional try-out contract on Sunday afternoon to serve as an emergency back-up.

Luongo is among the favourites to be named as one of Canada's three Olympic goaltenders on Tuesday.
