 Roberto Luongo is an incredibly athletic and hard-working goaltender. He’s quick with his glove hand, is able to make saves through traffic, has very good lateral mobility, and possesses the ability to make acrobatic saves. Luongo provides a calming presence for the Panthers defensive pairings and forward lines and gives them confidence that if they happen to make a mistake, he’ll be there to shut the door.
