Vincent Lecavalier potted a goal for the Flyers in their 5-2 loss to the Devils on Saturday night.
The days of Lecavalier as one of the premiere pass-first centers in the game are long gone, which is a shame because he was quite fun to watch in his prime. The 34-year-old does have points in three straight games, however, good for 12 on the season. Andrew MacDonald also scored and assisted in the loss. Wayne Simmonds had five penalty minutes a minus-one rating. Jan 3 - 9:44 PM

Vincent Lecavalier assisted on Chris Vandevelde's goal Friday.

The assist gives Lecavalier five points in his last seven games as he had scored four times in the previous six contests. Lecavalier now has six goals and 11 points in 24 games. Use him at your own risk.
Jan 3 - 9:47 AM

Vincent Lecavalier found the back of the net in Philadelphia's 5-2 win over Minnesota.

Lecavalier also had two goals on Sunday, but we're still skeptical about his potential for the rest of the season. While his recent offensive outburst certainly helps, the big question is if it has been enough to win over coach Craig Berube. Lecavalier only logged 12:56 minutes on Tuesday and just 10:40 minutes in his two-goal game. Until his ice time goes up significantly, it will be hard to bet on him enjoying sustained success.

Vincent Lecavalier scored twice in Philadelphia's 4-3 overtime victory on Sunday.

"To get one, it gets the confidence up and your next shift out there, you kind of feel better and see your vision is better," Lecavalier said. It will be interesting to see if coach Craig Berube rewards him with a bigger role in the Flyers' upcoming games. Lecavalier has been a healthy scratch six times this season and hasn't played much even when he is in the lineup. He has four goals and eight points in 19 games this season.

Vincent Lecavalier is expected to skate on the Flyers' fourth line to the right of Chris VandeVelde and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare.

Lecavalier has averaged just 13:19 during his 18 games this season. He has two goals and six points on 30 shots. Until he can show a sustained ability to score, he unfortunately can no longer be considered valuable in fantasy. Neither are VandeVelde and Bellemare for that matter.

Vincent Lecavalier was limited to 11:48 minutes in the Flyers' 2-1 shootout loss on Thursday.

Lecavalier was used during the shootout, but failed to convert on his opportunity. He spent six of Philadelphia's previous seven games as a healthy scratch and the one exception was a game he missed due to a lower-body injury. As we previously mentioned, the Flyers have limited Lecavalier's playing time all season, so the larger issue of Lecavalier's role with Philadelphia to be solved with his return to the lineup. That said, this situation is still worth monitoring.

Vincent Lecavalier is projected to return to the Flyers' lineup on Thursday.

Lecavalier has spent six of the Flyers' last seven contests in the press box and the one exception was when he was sidelined with a lower-body injury. Flyers coach Craig Berube suggested that he wouldn't simply put Lecavalier on the fourth line, although he didn't reveal exactly what role he'll have. One possibility is that Lecavalier will play alongside Sean Couturier and Matt Read while R.J. Umberger will be dropped to the fourth line.

Vincent Lecavalier, Carlo Colaiacovo, and Michael Del Zotto will all be healthy scratches on Tuesday night.

Coach Berube doesn't want to mix up his forward lines at the moment, "I think what plays into it is how they're playing and the chemistry they have right now. That is more important to me." As for Colaiacovo and Del Zotto, one may not have to think very hard about their NHL futures, either.

Vincent Lecavalier (lower body) is healthy enough to play on Tuesday, but he won't.

Between Lecavalier's minor injury and his time serving as a healthy scratch, he has already missed six straight contests. Even when he has played this season, his ice time has been minimal. Unless he gets traded, we can't recommend owning him in standard leagues.

Vincent Lecavalier (lower body) isn't expected to play on Tuesday.

Lecavalier's injury isn't serious, but there's a good chance he won't be in the lineup even if he's available. He was a healthy scratch for five straight games before missing a contest due to his ailment.

Vincent Lecavalier (lower body) took part in Monday's practice.

Lecavalier skated on the Flyers' extra line, which suggests that he won't play on Tuesday. Whether that's due to his injury or coach Craig Berube's decision is hard to say. Even before Lecavalier was hurt, he spent five games in the press box.

Vincent Lecavalier will not be a healthy scratch on Saturday as he is now out of action with a lower body injury.

Lecavalier has missed the last five games as coach Craig Berube has sat him in the press box. With only two assists in his previous 12 games of action, Lecavalier was no longer a fantasy asset.

Vincent Lecavalier's lower-body injury is a "tweak."

Lecavalier missed Friday's practice as a result and is regarded as day-to-day. He has spent the last five games in the press box.

Vincent Lecavalier missed Friday's practice due to a lower-body injury.

The timing of this injury is particularly unfortunate for Lecavalier given that he was trying to work his way back into the lineup after being a healthy scratch for five straight games. Now the Flyers can table the question of what to do with Lecavalier until he's healthy enough to return.
