Luongo will call it a career after 19 years in the NHL, the team announced Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Luongo hangs up his skates having appeared in 1,044 games for the Islanders, Canucks and Panthers. Selected with the fourth overall pick in the 1997 NHL Draft, the veteran logged over 70-plus games in four seasons, something that is unlikely to happen again in today's NHL. The world-class netminder will no doubt garner consideration for the Hall of Fame, as he ends his career with a 489-392-124 record, .919 save percentage and 2.52 GAA.

Luongo stopped 23 of 27 shots in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Devils.

EDGE Analysis

The 40-year-old wasn't able to extend his winning streak to four games to close out the season. Luongo posted the worst numbers of his career in 2018-19, but given that he still has three years left on his contract, he'll likely be in the goaltending mix in some fashion for Florida next season.

Luongo will start in the home goal Saturday for the season finale against the Devils, George Richards of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Panthers have missed the playoffs, though Luongo has a chance to close out the season on a high note, as he'll be in pursuit of his fourth straight win facing a Devils club with a paltry road record of 10-26-3.

Luongo stopped 27 of 30 shots in Monday's 5-3 win over the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

The 39-year-old has won three straight starts and four of five since regaining his spot at the top of the Panthers' depth chart from rookie Samuel Montembeault. Luongo's 2.66 GAA and .918 save percentage over that stretch are right in line with his performance over the last couple of seasons, and despite his age, he still has something left in the tank when he's 100 percent healthy.

Luongo will be between the pipes for Monday's home clash with Washington, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Luongo has stepped up his game of late, as he is 3-1-0 with .922 save percentage in his last four outings. Given the Panthers won't be making the playoffs, it's a little surprising to see the club not give the nod to Samuel Montembeault, though it could just be resting him up to take the final two games of the season. With the youngster pushing for a spot on the roster, Florida will have some tough choices to make in goal, especially in regards to the 39-year-old Luongo who carries a $4,533,333 cap hit for another three years.

Luongo stopped 30 of 31 shots in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Bruins.

EDGE Analysis

A Noel Acciari goal in the second period spoiled Luongo's bid for his second shutout of the season. The netminder has won three of his four starts, posting a 2.57 GAA and .922 save percentage as he looks to finish his 19th NHL season on a high note.

Luongo will start between the pipes in Saturday afternoon's road game against the Bruins, Steve Goldstein of Fox Sports Florida reports.

EDGE Analysis

Luongo draws a second consecutive start after thwarting the Senators with a 28-save effort in their barn Thursday. It's been an inconsistent campaign for the league's oldest netminder, but he's held up for the most part, posting a 16-16-4 record, 3.16 GAA and .898 save percentage over 40 games. Bobby Lou will now clash with Boston club that ranks sixth in the league in home scoring (3.49 goals per game).

Luongo made 28 saves in a 5-2 win over Ottawa on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

He managed to pull to 16-16-4 with the win. Bobby Lou is a potential Hall of Fame goalie, but at 39, his best is well behind him. He did get the kitties in the win column though and that's something that hadn't happened in their three previous games.

Luongo will start in goal against host Ottawa on Thursday, Steve Goldstein of Fox Sports Florida reports.

EDGE Analysis

Luongo reportedly will be countered by Anders Nilsson in this divisional showdown against an Ottawa club that owns a hideous minus-52 goal differential. Bobby Lou is 15-16-4 with a 3.19 GAA and .897 save percentage through 39 games.

Luongo won't get the start in goal for Tuesday's matchup with Montreal.

EDGE Analysis

The Panthers originally planned on rolling with Luongo for Tuesday's contest, but that all changed when the veteran netminder was forced to relieve Samuel Montembeault early on in the first period of Monday's 7-5 loss to Toronto. Luongo's next opportunity to start in goal could arrive as soon as Thursday against the Senators.
