Panthers to retire Roberto Luongo’s No. 1 jersey

Roberto Luongo will go down in Panthers history in more ways than one.

The team on Monday announced the veteran goaltender will become the franchise’s first player to have his number retired.

Luongo’s No. 1 jersey is scheduled to be sent to the BB&T Center rafters March 7 before the Panthers host the Canadiens.

“Roberto is a cornerstone of Panthers history and an icon of the game,” Panthers owner Vincent J. Viola said in a release.
