PHOTO: Roberto Luongo brings old Panthers mask to first practice

Usually when goalies get traded, they don't have a mask to accompany their new team's color scheme. Look at Ryan Miller in St. Louis for example; he is rocking a plain white lid with a Blues sticker until he can get a new one.

This isn't a problem that affects Roberto Luongo. The goalie was traded back to the Florida Panthers this week, something he had wanted for a while now. It showed when he busted out his old mask from the days of yore with the Panthers.

Yes, Luongo still had his Panthers mask from 2006 hanging around so when he hit the ice for his first practice as a member of the Panthers in eight years, he fit right in. Outside of looking a bit retro, of course.

Either Luongo is a hoarder or he always intended on getting back to South Florida for his NHL duties.
