With the retirement of Roberto Luongo, hockey is losing more than the third-winningest goalie in League history, it is losing a Hall of Fame tweeter.
Though Luongo's career began long before the platform was even invented in 2006 and he didn't join until 2011, he was easily one of the most entertaining follows in hockey.
He wasn't, like so many of us, a volume tweeter. His retirement announcement, which featured goalie pads hanging from some power lines in the street was just his 9th post of 2019.
This final tweet of his NHL career was like so many before it: Concise, humorous and wildly popular.
Whether it is self-deprication or needling a fellow player, Luongo said it all.
He had the perfect tweet for when he was caught out of position.
And he always appreciated his defensive help.
Luongo knew his place in history.
And never backed down from a challenge.
Never backed down from a challenge off the ice, either.
Luongo was honest about his fears.
And about his age.
He may not have earned celebrity status.
But he definitely knew what he was good at.
Hopefully in retirement Luongo will have even more time for Twitter.
