Florida Panthers goaltender Roberto Luongo said he feels healthy and has been cleared medically after having surgery to repair a torn hip labrum in May, the Miami Herald reported Monday.

"I was rehabbing until late May and I was released to have my regular summer routine," Luongo, 38, said after a Friday morning on-ice workout that included Panthers goalie coach Robb Tallas. "It's good to be able to get back to my regular summer training program. This is my second week ... everything feels great and I haven't had any issues. That's good.

"It's comforting mentally to know I can go through a rigorous workout and go all out and not have any issues nor think about it. That's a big first step for me after going through the ups-and-downs of having to deal with my issue last year. It's nice to have that piece of mind."

Luongo didn't play after leaving a game against the Philadelphia Flyers on March 2 after one period. In 40 games, he went 17-15-6 with a 2.68 goals-against average and .915 save percentage.
