Luongo in Vancouver is the tale of NHL goaltender Roberto Luongo's career with the Vancouver Canucks, as covered by Vancouver's daily tabloid newspaper, The Province.

The Province was at rinkside for Luongo's spectacular first season and his second-year burnout, for his unprecedented captaincy and his relinquishment of it, for his Olympic gold medal and his playoff meltdowns.

We've chosen and compiled in-depth features, game reports, opinion columns and Q&As that have appeared in Province Sports since Luongo's arrival in Vancouver, based on dozens of interviews our writers have done with him through the years. These stories together form a portrait of an athlete Vancouver sports fans will be talking about for many years after he's gone -- whether 2012 is his year or not.
