Vincent Lecavalier still plans on retiring.

Lecavalier's retirement was mentioned when the Kings acquired from from the Flyers earlier this season. His improved play after the trade left some people wondering if he'd change his mind. On Sunday, Lecavalier confirmed that he is indeed going to call it a career. The 36-year-old scored 421 goals and 949 points in 1212 games. Lecavalier is a four-time all-star, one-time Stanley Cup champion and one-time Maurice Richard Trophy (most goals in a season) winner.

The Kings lost on Friday, eliminating them from the playoffs and beginning the speculation of what does and does not lie ahead for Vincent Lecavalier.

In short, Lecavalier verbally agreed with Kings GM Dean Lombardi to retire at the end of the season in order to come to LA. Legally speaking, Lecavalier has no obligation to do so and forfeit $6M in salary split evenly over the next two seasons. Things get interesting if he doesn't retire, but let's act as though he'll keep his word. Lecavalier's final season ends with 10 goals and 18 points in 49 games split between LA and Philadelphia during the regular season. He also scored a goal and two points during the playoffs. See the link below for perspective on where he sits on Tampa Bay's all-time lists. (Hint, at or near the top of almost everything.)

Vincent Lecavalier contributed an assist in Los Angeles' 2-1 overtime win against San Jose in Game 3 on Monday.

Lecavalier now has two points thus far in the first round series. Any contributions he makes in the playoffs represent a major turn from where he started the 2015-16 campaign. He seemed doomed to spend the season primarily in the press box with Philadelphia, but Lecavalier got a fresh start when the Kings acquired him. He finished with 10 goals and 18 points in 49 regular season contests.

Vincent Lecavalier got a goal for the Kings in their 2-1 loss to the Sharks in Game 2.

Lecavalier converted on the power play as he slipped into the soft spot while there was all kinds of commotion at the crease. He ended up proving that he had something left in the tank with the Kings in the regular season (10 goals, 17 points in 42 games), and he’s showing he still has that savvy that’s made him a productive postseason player, too, with 26 goals and 55 points in 72 career playoff games. Tanner Pearson and Jake Muzzin got the helpers.

Vincent Lecavalier (undisclosed) returned to action on Saturday.

Lecavalier played only 10:29 but still managed to be a minus-two in a 6-4 win over the Oilers. He was held off the scoresheet and now has played in 50 games with eight goals and 15 points. He's not fantasy worthy.
Mar 27 - 3:32 AM

Vincent Lecavalier is questionable to play Saturday against the Oilers due to his undisclosed injury.

Through 34 games with the Kings, Lecavalier has posted eight goals, 15 points, and 49 hits while skating an average of 14:04 per night. Not too shabby, all things considered.

Vincent Lecavalier is doubtful for Thursday's game due to an undisclosed injury.

Whatever's bothering Lecavalier, it sounds like it's not serious. He was still able to attend Thursday's practice, so that's a good sign even if he ultimately misses tonight's contest.

Vincent Lecavalier participated in his 1,200th game on Tuesday.

There's two ways to look at this milestone. Either your mind will turn to all the healthy scratches he endured as a member of the Philadelphia Flyers and think that if only he wasn't with that franchise he might have reached this milestone quicker or you can note that if not for the trade, he might not have reached this milestone at all. Lecavalier registered an assist Tuesday night, giving him eight goals and 14 points in 30 games with Los Angeles.
Mar 16 - 10:59 AM

Vincent Lecavalier is making the most of his time as a Los Angeles King.

Lecavalier has gotten off to a nice start as a King. The 35 year-old has 12 points, including seven goals in 28 games since being acquired from the Philadelphia Flyers. He has been averaging 13 minutes and 9 seconds since his arrival. Lecavalier, who is two games shy of reached his 1,200 career game, said he still feels good. "The way we play, the structure this team has, I think makes things a lot easier as a player. There’s no gray areas. I mean, there are, but everything is very well structured. There’s a lot of videos. A lot of stuff like that, so you’re always doing the right things."
Mar 14 - 12:05 PM

Vincent Lecavalier found the back of the net in a 4-3 overtime victory against Washington Wednesday night.

Lecavalier is on a three-game point streak. He's up to seven goals and 12 points in 27 games with the Kings this season. That's not stunning numbers, but it's leagues ahead of the situation he was enduring in Philadelphia prior to the trade.
Mar 10 - 8:57 AM
