Flyers' Lecavalier Ruled Out For Finale

News: Vincent Lecavalier was ruled out for Saturday's season finale against the Senators due to a probable concussion, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier sustained the head injury in Thursday's loss to the Hurricanes. The concussion will end what has been a terrible season that included several healthy scratches for the forward, who will finish with just 20 points in 57 games. He'll still have three years remaining on his contract with the Flyers at a $4.5 million cap hit.

Flyers' Lecavalier Leaves With Upper-Body Injury

News: Vincent Lecavalier exited Thursday's game early with an upper-body injury.
Analysis: The origin of Vincent Lecavalier's injury is a bit unclear, but he was missing from the Flyers' bench for much of the third period. The club indicated that more information on the issue will come at some point Friday.

Flyers' Lecavalier Collects Assist In Win

News: Vincent Lecavalier snagged an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Islanders.
Analysis: The assist gives him 20 points for the season, a stark total despite his injuries. His production has steadily declined over the last few seasons, and he's barely seeing over 10 minutes of ice time. The aging star doesn't have a bright future for fantasy owners.

Flyers' Lecavalier Scores In Win

News: Vincent Lecavalier potted his eighth goal of the season in Wednesday's 4-1 win over Pittsburgh.
Analysis: It's the aging star's first goal since Jan. 3, ending a 27-game drought. His 19 points in 53 games this season have been a huge disappointment for fantasy owners who thought they might be at least be drafting a shadow of the Vincent Lecavalier of old.

Vincent Lecavalier

Flyers' Lecavalier Returns To Lineup

News: Vincent Lecavalier will return to the lineup Tuesday against the Stars, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier, who sat out the Flyers' last three games, will replace R.J. Umberger in the lineup and likely serve in a fourth-line capacity. Though he'll be back in action Tuesday, it's clear the Flyers aren't expecting much from the 34-year-old former star, who has been scratched 13 times already this season and has posted 17 points and a minus-9 rating over 46 games.

Vincent Lecavalier, C, PHI Flyers' Lecavalier Back In Lineup Saturday

Vincent Lecavalier

Flyers' Lecavalier Back In Lineup Saturday

News: Vincent Lecavalier will return to the lineup Saturday against the Rangers, NHL.com's Adam Kimelman reports.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier served as a healthy scratch for the Flyers' last four games, but will replace Zac Rinaldo on the team's fourth line Saturday. With merely 16 points and a minus-9 rating over 44 games this season, Lecavalier's decline has been even more rapid than anticipated. And it could get a lot worse from here, as he's still under contract for another three seasons.

Vincent Lecavalier

Flyers' Lecavalier On Track For Healthy Scratch

News: Vincent Lecavalier is expected to be a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against the Predators, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Analysis: Coach Craig Berube tinkered with his lines at Friday's practice, with Vincent Lecavalier ultimately finding himself outside of the top four trios. Barring a late change of heart from the coach, Lecavalier will hit the press box, which was a regular occurrence for him in December. The 34-year-old has gone 19 games without a goal, while providing only three assists during that stretch.

Vincent Lecavalier

Flyers' Lecavalier Dishes Two

News: Vincent Lecavalier assisted on both Flyers goals in Thursday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Isles.
Analysis: This amounts to a breakout game by Vincent Lecavalier's modern standards, as he earned as many points Thursday as he had in his prior 12 outings combined. His name will keep him on the back end of fantasy rosters in deeper formats, but this just isn't the same guy anymore.

Vincent Lecavalier, C, PHI Flyers' Lecavalier: Six-Game Drought

Vincent Lecavalier

Flyers' Lecavalier: Six-Game Drought

News: Vincent Lecavalier has failed to mark up the box score in six straight games.
Analysis: After notching points in three straight games, Vincent Lecavalier has cooled considerably. He's on pace for his worst season, and his fantasy value is tenuous at best.

Vincent Lecavalier, C, PHI Flyers' Lecavalier Suddenly Hot

Vincent Lecavalier

Flyers' Lecavalier Suddenly Hot

News: After scoring a goal in Saturday's loss to the Devils, Vincent Lecavalier extended his point streak to three games.
Analysis: Banished to the press box for the first half of December, Vincent Lecavalier has provided a jolt since returning, netting five goals and an assist over nine games. That extent of production is unlikely to last for Lecavalier, but it will at least lock him back into the lineup for the foreseeable future.

Flyers' Lecavalier Continues Strong Play Friday

News: Vincent Lecavalier picked up an assist in Friday's loss to Carolina.
Analysis: A resurgent Vincent Lecavalier now has four goals and five points in his past six games. Considering he's only averaging 13:34 of ice time on the Flyers' fourth line, it's impressive Lecavalier is still on track to land around the 20-goal mark. If he can continue this solid play, he's worth a look in some very deep leagues.

Flyers' Lecavalier Scores Twice Vs. Jets

News: Vincent Lecavalier ended a seven-game scoring drought Sunday, potting two goals in a win over Winnipeg.
Analysis: The 34-year-old now has four goals and eight points in 19 games, to go with a minus-4 rating. While he still has some gas left in the tank, the fourth-liner has been too inconsistent to be depended on in most fantasy formats right now. He's looked better of late, though, and is one to monitor, because if he catches fire, he could be worth adding in some deeper formats.

Vincent Lecavalier, C, PHI Flyers' Lecavalier Likely To Play

Vincent Lecavalier

Flyers' Lecavalier Likely To Play

News: Coach Craig Berube said after Wednesday's practice that there is a "good chance" Vincent Lecavalier will play Thursday against the Panthers, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier has spent the previous seven games in the press box, but it looks like Berube has finally warmed up to the idea of returning the pricey veteran into the lineup. Berube said Lecavalier would likely play at his natural center spot Thursday, though probably in a bottom-six role, making it difficult for him to deliver much value.

Flyers' Lecavalier Recovered From Injury

News: Vincent Lecavalier is fully recovered from the lower-body injury he sustained last week, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Even so, he'll serve as a healthy scratch for the Flyers' seventh straight game Tuesday. There's been no indication from coach Craig Berube that he intends to return Vincent Lecavalier to a regular role in the near future.

Flyers' Lecavalier To Practice Monday

News: Vincent Lecavalier (hip) will return to the ice for practice Monday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: With six points in 16 games, Vincent Lecavalier is on pace to have his worst NHL season to this point, and he's even spent extensive time in the press box recently as a healthy scratch. To make matters worse, Lecavalier still has three more years on the five-year, $22.5 million deal that he signed with the Flyers in July of 2013.

Flyers' Lecavalier Has Lower-Body Injury

News: Vincent Lecavalier is dealing with a lower-body injury, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: Given that Vincent Lecavalier has been a healthy scratch for five consecutive games, it stands to reason that he suffered the injury at some point during a recent practice. Though the severity of the ailment isn't known, it certainly won't help his case for getting back into the lineup anytime soon.

Flyers To Scratch Lecavalier For Fourth Straight

News: Vincent Lecavalier will be a healthy scratch for the fourth straight game Tuesday against the Blue Jackets, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: It remains to be seen when Vincent Lecavalier will earn his way back into the Philadelphia lineup, but it seems as though coach Craig Berube no longer has faith him to be a productive regular. With the four-time All-Star assuming a cap hit of $4.5 million each year through the end of 2018, it seems likely that the Flyers will buy out Lecavalier at some point, though it remains to be seen when that time will come.

Flyers' Lecavalier Will Be Healthy Scratch Tuesday

News: Vincent Lecavalier will be a healthy scratch for Tuesday's game against the Sharks, the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
Analysis: Tuesday night will mark the first time in Vincent Lecavalier's career that he hasn't been a part of his team's lineup. It's unclear if this will be more than a one-game absence for Lecavalier, who was skating on the team's fifth line during Monday's practice with injured forward Ryan White.

Flyers' Lecavalier Struggling To Produce

News: Vincent Lecavalier captured an assist in Thursday's loss to the Wild.
Analysis: With just three points in eight November games thus far, it doesn't look like Vincent Lecavalier in on track to gain much fantasy utility while he remains confined to a bottom-six role. Those hoping the 34-year-old will rediscover the fountain of youth and deliver the level of production he enjoyed with the Lightning may need a reality check.

Flyers' Lecavalier Scores In Return From Injury

News: Vincent Lecavalier scored a goal in his first game back from injury. It was the Flyers' only goal in a 2-1 loss to the Panthers on Saturday night.
Analysis: Get him back in your lineup, but don't expect miracles. His decline started a while ago.

Philly's Lecavalier To Play Saturday

News: Vincent Lecavalier (foot) will be activated from injured reserve and play Saturday against the Panthers, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier initially targeted a return to the lineup Thursday against the Lightning, but didn't quite feel 100 percent after skating the last week. The extra day was apparently all he needed to reach the finish line of his recovery, and he'll now prepare to make his first appearance in a game since Oct. 11.

Flyers' Lecavalier Will Not Return Thursday

News: Vincent Lecavalier (foot) will not be activated from injured reserve Thursday in advance of Thursday's game against the Lighnting, Erik Erlendsson of The Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier has been skating for a week and is nearly ready to resume playing, but he wasn't able to recover quickly enough to suit up against his former team. The team hasn't suggested that Lecavalier suffered a setback while skating this week, so he could still remain an option for Saturday's game in Florida.

Flyers' Lecavalier Skates, But Won't Play Tuesday

News: Vincent Lecavalier (foot) took part in Tuesday's morning skate, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier will not play in Tuesday night's game against the Kings, but his participation in the morning skate gives him a chance to return to action for the Flyers' next game Thursday.

Flyers' Lecavalier Nearing Return

News: Vincent Lecavalier (foot) could return as soon as Thursday's game against Tampa Bay, Wayne Fish of the Burlington County Times reports.
Analysis: Vinny's been out since Oct. 11 with the foot ailment, but it sounds like he's getting close to returning. We should know more about his status by Thursday morning.

Flyers Transfer Lecavalier To IR

News: Vincent Lecavalier (foot) was placed on injured reserve Friday, CSNPhilly.com's Sarah Baicker reports.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier returned to practice Friday for the first time since suffering the injury Oct. 11. Because he's already missed over a week of action, the Flyers will be able to stash Lecavalier on injured reserve retroactively. Lecavalier looks on track to play at some point next week, perhaps as early as Tuesday against the Kings.
