Luongo (lower body) is listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

EDGE Analysis

The writing was on the wall that Luongo would need to be placed on injured reserve, as Panthers coach Bob Boughner has given the veteran goalie a return timetable of anywhere from 2-to-5 weeks. Expect the Cats to continue relying heavily on James Reimer while Luongo recovers, but it wouldn't be all that shocking to see Harri Sateri make his NHL debut within the next few weeks.

Luongo (lower body) is out indefinitely, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Head coach Bob Boughner mentioned that Luongo could miss anywhere from two to five weeks depending on how his rehabilitation progresses. A positive to take from this news is that Luongo's injury won't require surgery and that he's already begun rehab exercises. Expect the Panthers to issue further updates on Luongo's condition as he gets closer to full health and James Reimer to shoulder Florida's goaltending duties while Luongo's out.

Luongo will undergo an MRI on Tuesday to determine the severity of what is believed to be a groin injury, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

EDGE Analysis

While we'll have to wait on the results of the MRI to see how bad the injury truly was, the non-contact nature of it and the fact that Luongo could not put any weight on his right leg while being helped off the ice would seem to suggest that this could be a long-term ordeal. Should the veteran miss an extended period, the Panthers would have to recall a goalie to serve as James Reimer's backup.

Luongo suffered a right leg injury Monday against the Islanders, Shannon Hogan of MSG Network reports. He was helped off the ice by trainers and unable to put any weight on his leg. James Reimer replaced him in net.

EDGE Analysis

The reports from people at the game was that the injury appeared quite serious, which doesn't bode well for Luongo. The veteran netminder was having a fine season, as he came into Monday with a .928 save percentage. Meanwhile, Reimer has a .894 save percentage, so losing Luongo would really hurt the Panthers.

Luongo will tend the twine in Monday's outing against the Islanders, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Over his last five starts, Luongo posted a 2.39 GAA and .929 save percentage, yet this was only good enough for a 2-3-0 record. The Panthers sit 21st in the league by scoring an average of 2.81 goals per game, but have only averaged 1.60 goals per game over Luongo's last five starts -- making it incredibly difficult for the veteran netminder to land in the win column, regardless of how well he plays.

Luongo saved 30 of 32 shots during Friday's 2-1 loss to San Jose.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran entered with an impressive .944 save percentage and 1.98 GAA through his previous eight starts, so this checks out as another strong showing. Luongo's recent form has him in matchup-proof territory in the majority of fantasy settings.

Luongo will start in goal Friday night, with the Panthers playing host to the Sharks, Steve Goldstein of Fox Sports Florida reports.

Luongo stopped 23 of 25 shots in a 3-2 win over New Jersey on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

This was a stronger-than-usual showing against the Devils for Luongo, who faced a light workload and kept New Jersey at bay up until the third period. He's settled back in as the top goalie for Florida, and he's looking like a solid No. 2 fantasy goalie.

Luongo will be between the pipes for Monday's road tilt versus the Devils, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Luongo will be making his fourth straight appearance in the crease after posting a 2.63 GAA in his three most recent outings. The 38-year-old seems to be the clear No. 1 for the Panthers, despite early season speculation that he could be in line to split time with backup James Reimer. Historically, the netminder has underwhelmed versus New Jersey -- a lifetime 12-16-0 record and .912 save percentage.

Luongo made 35 saves in a 4-1 loss to Chicago on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Bobby Lou is as strong as ever, but he just didn't get support from his fellow kitties. Luongo is 4-2 in his last six starts and is a worthy fantasy activation, even at 38.
