Roberto Luongo to break summer silence in TV interview

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      He has watched as the Vancouver Canucks have switched head coaches and traded away his understudy this summer. And not a peep from Roberto Luongo.

      He switched agents a month ago joining forces with the most powerful representatives in hockey. And again, no one heard from Luongo.

      Plenty has happened since the Vancouver Canucks last suited up for a hockey game and Roberto Luongo elected to stay quiet on all matters involving him and the hockey club electing to spend his summer out of the spotlight in south Florida.

      This afternoon (August 23), however, the Canucks netminder breaks his silence in his first interview since last May.

      Luongo sits down with TSN’s James Duthie for a two-part interview which will run today and tomorrow. The network claims Luongo discusses his situation, his reaction to the Cory Schneider trade, his future with the Canucks, and what he expects with new head coach John Tortorella now callling the shots.

      Luongo will be in Calgary this weekend for Hockey Canada’s Olympic orientation camp and is expected to report to the Canucks training camp on September 11.
