Roberto Luongo isn’t just having a great season at an advanced age. He’s also reminding people of his impressive, perhaps Hall-of-Fame-worthy career.

He played nicely in the Florida Panthers’ 5-1 win against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday. It wasn’t just a win that celebrated Aleksander Barkov‘s extension, either (Barkov scored in the contest, by the way).

Nope, Luongo continues to climb up the all-time rankings, as his 423rd career regular season win ties him with Tony Esposito for seventh in NHL history.

Here are the top seven, for your consideration:

1. Martin Brodeur – 691 wins
2. Patrick Roy – 551
3. Ed Belfour – 484
4. Curtis Joseph – 454
5. Terry Sawchuk – 447
6. Jacques Plante – 437
7. Espo and Lou – 423

In case you’re wondering, the highest-ranked active goalies not named Luongo are Henrik Lundqvist (17th place with 362 wins), Marc-Andre Fleury (20th with 340) and Ryan Miller (22nd with 334).

Where do you think Luongo ends this season, and when he hangs up the goalie pads to tweet funny things full-time?
