Canucks’ goaltender Ryan Miller, who has been out of action since Feb. 22 due to a sprained knee, is set to rejoin the club.

The Canucks announced on Thursday that Miller was joining the team for practice, which is the next step in his recovery.

“He’s ready to practise. We’ll take it day to day and see where he’s at,” said Canucks GM Jim Benning per the Vancouver Sun’s Iain MacIntyre.

The 34-year-old suffered the injury during a game against the New York Islanders after teammate Jannik Hansen ran into him.

Miller was 28-15-1 to go along with a 2.47 G.A.A. and a .913 save percentage prior to the injury.

Vancouver is 11-6-2 during Miller’s absence.

A report last week suggested Miller won’t be ready for game action before the playoffs.

After concluding their four-game road trip in Winnipeg on Saturday, the Canucks have just three games remaining.
