While Hall of Famer Roberto Luongo will need to dust off his goalie equipment ahead of Friday's All-Star Skills Competition, his patented wit is in mid-season form.

"They asked me if I was interested and I don't know why I said yes," Luongo joked following Wednesday's All-Star alumni game, according to NHL.com's Corey Long. "I went on the ice yesterday for the first time and I still feel it in my legs, but it was fun to have the gear back on. After four years off I felt a lot better than I thought I would, so I'm really looking forward to Friday."
