Star goalie Luongo retires

Florida Panthers goaltender Roberto Luongo, a two-time Olympic and world champion for Canada, announced his retirement on Wednesday after 19 National Hockey League seasons, calling it quits at age 40. Luongo, a hero in Canada’s 2010 Winter Olympic gold medal run, was the third-winningest goalie in NHL history with a career record of 489 wins, 392 losses, 91 overtime defeats and 33 draws. “This is one of the toughest decisions I’ve faced in my life and it took me a long time to make it,” Luongo wrote in a letter posted on the Panthers website. Luongo had a 2.52 goals-against average, a .919 save percentage and 77 shutouts over 1,044 NHL games with the New York Islanders, Vancouver Canucks and the Panthers this past season. Luongo trails only Martin Broduer’s 691 wins and Patrick Roy’s 551 on the all-time NHL win list.
