Canucks to honour franchise legend during 2023-24 season

Published September 29, 2023 at 9:37 PM

The Vancouver Canucks announced on their social media accounts on Wednesday that they will be celebrating former goaltender Roberto Luongo this coming season.

On December 14th, against one of Luongo's former teams and current employer, the Florida Panthers, the Canucks legend will see his name be placed on the Ring of Honour at Rogers Arena.

"Honouring one of the greats.

On December 14th, as your Vancouver Canucks take on the Florida Panthers, Roberto Luongo will be inducted into the club's Ring of Honour!"

Luongo, 44, spent parts of eight seasons with the Vancouver Canucks from 2006 until he was traded in 2014. In 448 career games with the Canucks, the Montreal native had a record of 376-137-50 with a 2.36 goals against average, a .919 save percentage and 38 shutouts.

His 252 wins and 38 shutouts are the most by any goaltender in Vancouver Canucks franchise history. In 2011, Luongo played a huge role in helping the Canucks reach the Stanley Cup Final, where they ultimately lost in seven games to the Boston Bruins.
