Roberto Luongo is 37, the oldest starting goalie in the NHL.

Al Montoya is a free agent, who wasn’t expected to be back.

And that’s why the Florida Panthers just signed James Reimer to a five-year, $17 million contract.

Reimer, 28, split last season between Toronto and San Jose. He finished with a .922 save percentage in 40 appearances.

So expect Luongo to start fewer games next season. He started 60 in 2015-16, and that’s a lot for a goalie his age.

The Panthers have also reportedly signed Colton Sceviour and Jonathan Marchessault to two-year deals.
