According to a source, Al Montoya was tested for a possible concussion after he left Monday's game.

He left the building under his own power, but still could miss some time with a suspected head injury. If that happens then Mike McKenna will likely be recalled from the minors.

Al Montoya left Monday's game against the Kings in the first period.

He was forced from the game after Nick Shore ran into him. Roberto Luongo entered the game in relief of Montoya. We'll update his status as soon as more details emerge.

Al Montoya will be in goal for Florida on Monday versus Los Angeles.

His last start came on Nov. 5 when he made 27 saves on 31 shots in a 5-2 loss to San Jose. Montoya has a 2-1-1 record this season with a .922 save percentage and a 2.22 GAA. Florida doesn't play again until Friday, so number one goalie Roberto Luongo will receive a long rest after a disappointing start versus the Rangers on Saturday.
Nov 23 - 5:26 PM

Al Montoya allowed three goals and made just 27 saves in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Sharks.

A combination of poor goaltending and porous defense conspired against Montoya and the Panthers in this one. Though it's worth noting that through four starts, this was the first bad one. Then again, Montoya is a career mediocre backup. So we wouldn't recommend him as a one-day filler.
Nov 6 - 2:25 AM

Al Montoya will get the start in Thursday's game against San Jose.

Montoya made 25 saves in a OT loss to Washington on Saturday. After Roberto Luongo got the start against the Ducks on Saturday, the Panthers are going back to Montoya tonight. He has a 2-0-1 record with a 1.63 goals-against-average and a .941 save percentage this season. He is a quality backup goaltender.
Nov 5 - 6:46 PM

Al Montoya will indeed get the start against Washington on Saturday night.

Two starts, two wins, and just three goals against on 58 combined shots for Montoya thus far. For his career, Montoya is 0-2-1 with eight goals against on 70 combined shots versus Tampa. You may want to find a more favorable matchup.
Oct 31 - 6:43 PM

Look for Al Montoya to get the start Saturday night against the Capitals.

Roberto Luongo started and lost to the Bruins Friday night so it stands to reason that Montoya will get the call against the Caps Saturday evening. In his last start, Montoya turned aside 33 shots in a 6-2 win over Dallas.
Oct 31 - 10:54 AM

The Florida Panthers made a statement by beating Dallas 6-2 on Saturday.

"This was very encouraging to see," said goalie Al Montoya. "This was a big statement, and it was for us only. In this room, we know what we’re capable of doing. It’s just, ‘let’s do it every night.’ We need to stop being that team where you don’t know if we’re going to show up every night. There’s no reason for us not to bring it." The win ended Florida's three-game losing streak.
Oct 25 - 8:30 AM

Al Montoya blocked 33 shots in the Panthers’ 6-2 win against the Stars on Saturday night.

Montoya gave up one of those goals while the Panthers were shorthanded. He has won both of his starts this season, stopping 55 of 58 shots against him. Montoya will likely only get 15 or so starts the rest of the way.
Oct 24 - 11:13 PM

Al Montoya will get the start in Saturday's game against the Dallas Stars.

The Panthers are giving starter Roberto Luongo the night off. Montoya gave up just one goal in a win over Carolina in his only start of the season.
Oct 24 - 4:59 PM

Al Montoya stopped 22 of 23 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Carolina.

Montoya didn't really stand a chance on Elias Lindholm's one-timer in the second period, but it wouldn't matter as his team got the job done in front of him. The 30-year-old's upside is non-existent because he's playing behind Roberto Luongo. He exits this game with a 1.00 goals-against-average and a .957 save percentage.
Oct 13 - 11:49 PM

Al Montoya will be Florida's starting goaltender on Tuesday.

Oct 13 - 2:26 PM

Al Montoya is confident that he could help the Florida Panthers make the playoffs this season.

"Whatever this year throws at me, I’ll be ready for and I’m ready to help this team make the playoffs. I feel stronger mentally and physically and that’s going to show on the ice. I have the talent, I just have to do it and make it through a whole season. There was a reason I was drafted sixth overall, a reason I’ve won championships.’’ Montoya will serve as the team's backup goaltender behind Roberto Luongo. He won't have any fantasy value heading into this season.
Sep 27 - 11:49 AM

Al Montoya made 31 saves in the Panthers’ 3-2 win against the Devils on Saturday night.

Montoya hadn’t gotten into a game since March 3, but Gerard Gallant gave him the start in the regular season finale. Montoya had a rough season as the backup, posting just a 3.08 goals-against average and .888 save percentage.
