Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo did not suit up Sunday against the Anaheim Ducks after suffering an undisclosed injury Saturday night against the Los Angeles Kings, according to Iain MacIntyre of the Vancouver Sun.

Luongo made his return to the lineup on Saturday after missing three games with a “lower-body” injury. The 34-year-old was sharp until a crease-crash by Kings’ captain Dustin Brown pushed the goalie back into his net and knocked his helmet off.

Luongo initially appeared to be fine, and after a visit from the Canucks’ trainer was able to finish the game, registering 46 saves in a losing effort.

The team has signed Rob Laurie to a professional try-out to backup Eddie Lack.

Luongo will have an MRI on the undisclosed injury on Monday.
