Lecavalier (healthy scratch) could be back in the lineup on Thursday.
Coach Craig Berube said that there is a chance that Lecavalier could be back in the lineup tomorrow vs. the Panthers. If Vinny gets back in, he will be playing centre. Lecavalier has six points (2G / 4A) in 16 games this season.
Lecavalier will be a healthy scratch vs. his former team on Tuesday.
Lecavalier has not been in the lineup in two weeks. He last suited up on November 29th vs. the Rangers and will be a scratch for the seventh consecutive game tomorrow. "It's not just because it's Tampa," Lecavalier said after Monday's practice. "I just want to play. I said pretty much everything last week. There's nothing to say. Practice hard and be ready mentally if I get a chance to play."
Lecavalier (lower-body) was back at Flyers practice on Monday.
Lecavalier has not played in the last six games, but he was believed to be a “healthy scratch” for at least three of those games. His return to practice today is a sign that he is getting healthy, but there is no word when he will get back into the lineup.
Lecavalier is day-to-day with a lower-body injury.
Lecavalier has been a healthy scratch for the last five games so he must have suffered the injury in practice recently. Since he has not been in the lineup, it won’t have any effect on the Flyers lineup on Saturday.
For the first time in his 15 year career. He played a season-low (likely a career-low) 5:56 in the Flyer loss to the Rangers on Saturday. Philadelphia is struggling mightily right now and Vinny has just one assist in his last nine games.
Lecavalier has missed the last seven games, but will be back in the Flyers lineup tomorrow vs. the Panthers. He will skate between R.J Umberger and Wayne Simmonds. He had one goal and two assists in his first three games.
Lecavalier (foot) is expected to return to the Flyers lineup on Saturday.
Lecavalier was a full-go in practice on Friday and skated on a line with R.J Umberger and Wayne Simmonds as well as participated in power-play drills, which are both signs that he should make a return to the lineup tomorrow. Vinny has missed the last seven games with a foot injury he suffered on October 11th.
Lecavalier (foot) will travel with the Flyers to Florida.
Lecavalier will miss his sixth straight game tonight but he will travel with the team this week, however his status still remains up in the air. He participated in the morning skate which is another positive, but as of right now, he remains without a target date.
Lecavalier (foot) is practicing with the Flyers this morning.
Lecavalier has not practiced since October 11th because of a foot injury he suffered in the third game of the season. He was only expected to skate on his own this morning, so staying on for the practice is a good sign that he foot is healing well. He is considered day-to-day and likely won't be back until next week.
Lecavalier was off to a nice start to the season, with one goal and two assists in the first three games, but will miss two weeks with the lower-body injury. He will likely land on IR for a brief period of time. Expect the Flyers to recall a forward from Lehigh Valley (AHL).
Lecavalier has been moved to the Flyers' fourth line ahead of Friday's game vs. Toronto.
Lecavalier has struggled in five-on-five situations at times this year. He has 15 goals and 15 assists (30 points), seven of those goals and 11 of the 30 points have come on the power-play. Lecavalier has one goal and three assists in his last 10 games, which looks like it is going to force head coach Craig Berube to drop him between Adam Hall and Zac Rinaldo.
Lecavalier (back) will return to the Flyers lineup tonight.
Lecavalier missed the last nine games with a non-displaced fracture in his lower-back. He will return to the lineup with Steve Downie coming out due to an injury of his own. The Flyers will likely ease Lecavalier back into action.
