Fantasy Impact: 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.

Fantasy Impact: Luongo has not made back-to-back starts thus far since the 2017-18 campaign has gotten underway. He and James Reimer appear to be in a season-long timeshare for netminder responsibilities. Luongo is 1-1-0 in the two appearances he has made, logging a 3.06 GAA and surrendering six goals on 63 shots (.905 S%). He played well in his last start against St. Louis, making 37 saves on 39 shots. The veteran goalie will square off against a Flyers team that is averaging an eye-opening 4.20 goals scored per game.

Fantasy Impact: Luongo was brilliant, turning aside 37 of 39 shots against the Blues on Thursday. In his two starts this season, the veteran goalie is 1-1-0 with a 3.06 GAA and .905 SV%. He squares off against the Penguins who are averaging 3.20 goals for per game.

 

Roberto Luongo turned aside 37 of the 39 shots he faced in the Panthers 5-2 win over St. Louis on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: It was Luongo's 454th career victory, which ties him with Curtis Joseph for fourth place for the most all-time NHL wins for a goalie. The 38-year-old netminder is now 1-1-0 for the season with a 3.06 GAA and .905 SV%. He is Florida's No. 1 goalie but will be in a virtual time share with backup James Reimer.

Fantasy Impact: Luongo was tagged with the loss in the Panthers' season opener in Tampa Bay, allowing four goals on 24 shots. He will take on a formidable St. Louis team that comes in at 4-0-0.

 

Roberto Luongo was credited with Florida's 5-3 loss to the Lightning on Friday night. He made 20 saves on 24 shots.

Fantasy Impact: Luongo allowed a couple of soft goals, one by Ondrej Palat who slipped the puck between Luongo's pads, and another by Brayden Point who scored on a shot from an odd angle. The 38-year-old Luongo and James Reimer form a solid netminding duo, and all signs point to another timeshare situation going into 2017-18. Unfortunately trying to figure out which goalie will start on any given night will not be easy.

Fantasy Impact: Luongo finished last year with a respectable .914 save percentage and a 17-15 record. He was limited to 40 games because of injury. Although still considered the No. 1 netminder for the Panthers, the 38-year-old Luongo is expected to be in a time-share with backup James Reimer. Fantasy owners should no longer anticipate Luongo starting 60-plus games has he was accustomed to do in years past.

 

Roberto Luongo stopped 38-of-40 shots during Florida's 4-2 preseason win versus Tampa Bay. He is now 1-0-0 with a 1.32 goals against average and a .958 save percentage in two games.

Roberto Luongo stopped all 28 shots he faced against the Devils on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: This was Luongo's first shutout of the season and was good enough to earn him his 12th win of the season. This was a much needed performance for him, as he had given up multiple goals in each of his past 10 starts, including four with more than three goals. Given his performance and the number of starts that James Reimer takes from him, he is not a great fantasy asset.
