Roberto Luongo's top 20 viral moments

Roberto Luongo leaves the NHL as not just one of its most accomplished goaltenders, but also one of the league's most entertaining personalities.

After his retirement on Wednesday, let's look back at his social-media prowess.

While there were dozens of examples we could have included, here are 20 of Luongo's most memorable moments online:

The farewell

In classic Luongo fashion, he revealed his plans on Wednesday by literally hanging up his pads.

Playful rivalry with Schneider

Luongo never seemed to pass on an opportunity to poke fun at his battle for the crease with Cory Schneider in Vancouver during their time with the Vancouver Canucks, and even long afterward.

Who could forget this one after Schneider was traded to the New Jersey Devils?

And Luongo wasn't done there.


After allowing eight goals during a loss to the Detroit Red Wings in 2013, Luongo couldn't help but make fun of himself.

That certainly wasn't the last time he'd put himself down.

Luongo was also a big fan of topical humor at his own expense, ribbing himself following a couple of Super Bowl victories by the New England Patriots.

He was also never shy about making fun of his on-ice misfortunes.


On the other hand, Luongo also knew his strengths and wasn't afraid to toot his own horn.

A little bit of both

Then there was the time he touted his own achievement while also working in a subtle self dig.

Halloween costumes

Many athletes have shown tremendous creativity on Halloween, but Luongo's choices were especially memorable.

Gold-medal memories

Many fans could relate to Luongo's emotional state when Sidney Crosby scored his golden goal.

Breaking the internet

We saved the best for last, and this one really doesn't require much explaining. Here's Luongo showing off his Photoshop skills and channeling Kim Kardashian:
