Roberto Luongo (lower body) may be ready to return in early February.

Coach Bob Boughner said that isn't a definitive timetable, but that is when he hopes to have Luongo available to play. He wants to make sure the Panthers get the veteran netminder back at 100 percent. Luongo has been out of action since Dec. 4 because of a lower-body injury.

Roberto Luongo (lower body) got back on the ice Thursday morning for the first time he was injured on Dec. 4.

Luongo did some work with goalie coach Robb Tallas. "He's obviously got a long way to go, but there's definitely been some great progression," coach Bob Boughner said. "It's nice to see him get the equipment back on." The Panthers bench boss added that a mid-January return for Luongo is unlikely to happen, but he has recovered faster than expected before.

Roberto Luongo's lower-body injury is expected to keep him sidelined for "an extended period of time," according to coach Bob Boughner.

"Whether that's three weeks, four weeks, five weeks, we're going to see how his rehab goes, that kind of thing," Boughner said. "Definitely out for a while." The good news is that Luongo's hip, which he had surgery on two summers ago, isn't the issue. According to multiple reports it could be a groin injury. He has been placed on injured reserve. James Reimer will fill in as the Panthers' number one goalie in Luongo's place.

Roberto Luongo's lower-body injury isn't related to his hip.

Luongo underwent hip surgery prior to the 2016-17 campaign, so it's good to no his present problem isn't a resurgence of that issue. That being said, he will be sidelined for weeks, according to Panthers coach Bob Boughner.
