A day after both Brooks Orpik and Matt Hendricks retired from the NHL, Roberto Luongo followed suit. Luongo announced his retirement after 19 seasons in the NHL, splitting his time between the Florida Panthers, Vancouver Canucks, and New York Islanders.
The 40-year-old ends his NHL tenure with 489 career wins, third of all time behind Martin Brodeur and Patrick Roy.
Luongo announced his retirement on Twitter with a joke about Florida retirement homes. His tweet was accompanied by a photo of a pair of goalie pads stung over an electrical wire next to a pair of sneakers.
