Latest on Luongo's Timeline for Return

Saturday, June 4

Fialkov, citing a source, reported Luongo "is expected to make a complete recovery in time for next season."

Luongo Important to Panthers' Success

Luongo was stellar throughout the 2015-16 season, finishing the campaign with a 35-19-6 record and .922 save percentage. The 37-year-old also posted a 2.35 goals-against average in his 16th NHL season as he continued to defy the odds and thrive past his prime.

Shortly before the playoffs started, Luongo reflected on how fortunate he had been in the injury department over the course of his career, per's Pierre LeBrun: 

I've been blessed that I've been pretty healthy my whole career. I've never had any major injuries. I'm thankful in that regard. I just like working on my game all the time. I always try to get better. I always feel that I can get better and improve. As long as that desire is there, I'll be able to be part of this league.

While the severity of the hip injury is unknown, the fact that Luongo opted for surgery shortly after the Panthers were bounced from the playoffs means he'll be able to kick-start the recovery process in a timely fashion and hopefully return to the crease for the start of the 2016-17 season.
