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

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.

Vincent Lecavalier, C, PHI Flyers To Scratch Lecavalier For Fourth Straight

Vincent Lecavalier

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.

Vincent Lecavalier, C, PHI Flyers' Lecavalier Struggling To Produce

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.

Flyers' Lecavalier Won't Return Saturday

News: Vincent Lecavalier (foot) said he will most realistically return to action next Thursday against the Lightning, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier was able to skate on his own prior to Friday's session and could be cleared to resume practicing with the team over the next couple of days. While he didn't rule out a return to action as early as Tuesday against the Kings, it seems more likely that he'll first be up to full speed Thursday, when the Flyers will take on his former squad. Philadelphia could still retroactively stash Lecavalier on injured reserve over the weekend in order to add an extra forward, but because he's already missed more than the minimum seven days, he'll be eligible for activation as soon as the Flyers deem him ready.

Flyers' Lecavalier To Resume Skating Friday

News: Vincent Lecavalier (foot) will resume skating on his own Friday, Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
Analysis: Though the fact that he's back on the ice creates some optimism, Vincent Lecavalier likely won't be cleared for a return to the Flyers lineup until next Tuesday at the earliest. Once he's ready to go, he'll likely reclaim the center spot on the second- or third-line, plunging Pierre-Edouard Bellemare down the depth chart.

Flyers' Lecavalier Out Two Weeks

News: Vincent Lecavalier will miss two weeks with the foot injury he suffered Saturday.
Analysis: A corresponding move to replace Vincent Lecavalier on the roster has not been announced just yet, but a short stint on IR seems likely.

Flyers' Lecavalier Seen Wearing Boot On Left Foot

News: Vincent Lecavalier walked out of the arena Saturday wearing a walking boot on his left foot, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier took a shot off the foot from his teammate Mark Streit, but finished the game and even took part in the shootout. It's unclear whether he will be available Tuesday or not, but the team will likely need to recall someone if he can't go.

Flyers' Lecavalier Notches Two Points

News: Vincent Lecavalier picked up a goal and an assist in Thursday's loss to the Devils.
Analysis: After a poor 2013-14 and a quiet game in the opener, it's good for fantasy owners and Flyers fans alike to see Vincent Lecavalier put up some offense. But at age 34, 1998's first overall pick is definitely in decline, so don't expect games like this to become a trend.

Flyers' Lecavalier 'Excited' For New Season

News: After ending last season by being benched in the final period of the Game 7 playoff loss to the Rangers, Vincent Lecavalier said he is feeling optimistic about this season, reports Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier was even more enthusiastic about this season after learning that coach Craig Berube plans to start him at center, his natural position. Last season, Berube experimented with placing Lecavalier in several different spots on several different lines. While some renewed eagerness and consistency will certainly benefit the aging center, don't forget that he is just that -- an aging center.

Flyers' Lecavalier Ascends To Second Line

News: Vincent Lecavalier will see time in the second line in Tuesday's Game 3 against the Rangers, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier has seen less than 10 minutes of ice time in Games 1 and 2 of the series, logging one assist. He'll skate alongside Brayden Schenn and Wayne Simmonds on Tuesday.

Lecavalier Contributes Two Points For Flyers

News: Vincent Lecavalier scored the opening goal -- his 20th of the year -- and added an assist in Tuesday's 5-2 romp over Florida.
Analysis: It looked touch-and-go for a while there, but Vincent Lecavalier has successfully struggled his way to 20 goals -- the 13th time he's reached that mark in the NHL. He's putting the finishing touches on one of the worst campaigns of his career, but does at least have consecutive two-point games and seven points in his last seven contests.
