Luongo dealt back to Panthers

The Vancouver Canucks have traded goaltender Roberto Luongo to the Florida Panthers.

A source confirmed to The Canadian Press that Luongo was headed back to his former team.

Luongo, whose unhappiness in Vancouver led to Cory Schneider being traded last season, has eight years left on his US$64-million, 12-year contract.

The Canucks reportedly received goalie Jacob Markstrom and forward Shawn Matthias from Florida in the deal.
