Luongo (40), had recently announced his retirement back in June after spending the last two decades in the NHL, primarily with the Panthers and Canucks. He will finish with 489 wins which is the third most among any goalie to play the game and is a two-time Olympic gold medal winner as well. Though he never won a Stanley Cup during these past 20 years, his incredible performance between the pipes for the Panthers was enough for them to award Luongo with this honor. The ceremony will take place on March 7, 2020, at BB&T Center when the Panthers take on the Canadiens.
