ESPN's John Buccigross told Pratt and Taylor Thursday that Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo has agreed to terms on a long-term extension that will officially be announced July 1st.
The 30-year-old Luongo went 33-13-7 last season with nine shutouts and is entering the final year of a 4-year, $27million contract.
Under NHL rules, the extension cannot be officially announced - and the two sides cannot discuss an extension - until Luongo is in the final year of his contract, which would be July 1st.
