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.

Flyers' Lecavalier Ends Brief Scoreless Skid

News: Vincent Lecavalier potted a goal and added an assist in Sunday's win over the Sabres.
Analysis: The veteran forward had been held off the scoresheet for the previous three games, but he came back strong Sunday despite seeing only 12:12 of ice time. Vincent Lecavalier's 35 points in 65 games aren't anything to scoff at, but he's not really worth rostering in shallow formats at this stage in his career.

Flyers' Lecavalier Tallies Two Goals

News: Vincent Lecavalier lit the lamp twice, was plus-2, and had nine shots on goal Sunday against the Bruins.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier now has over 400 goals on his career, but more pressingly he has 18 goals on the season. However, his performance this season hasn't usually been quite this good, as he is a minus-14 and only has 116 shots on goal for the year.

Flyers' Lecavalier Demoted To Fourth Line

News: Vincent Lecavalier has been demoted to the fourth line for Friday's game against the Maple Leafs, Philly.com reports.
Analysis: Coach Craig Berube said he will take things "shift by shift", so the situation bears watching. Vincent Lecavalier's been disappointing this season, but it's hard to imagine that he'd stick on the fourth line for long. For Friday's game, Tye McGinn will step into Lecavalier's typical role as the second-line left wing.

Flyers' Lecavalier Tallies 15th Of Season

News: Vincent Lecavalier scored his 15th goal of the season in Saturday's shutout win over Pittsburgh.
Analysis: It was a thing of beauty from Vinny, who took a breakway pass from Luke Schenn before fighting off a backchecking Matt Niskanen, and beating Pens' goalie Marc-Andre Fleury. Vincent Lecavalier now has three goals in his last six games, giving him 27 points in 57 games on the season.

Flyers' Lecavalier Brawls, Gets Tossed In Win

News: Vincent Lecavalier was ejected after twice fighting Capitals' defenseman John Erskine. The Flyers' center said the fight was "instinctive," according to Tim Panaccio of CSN Philly.com.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier rewarded owners with 17 PIM as a result of the fight. But don't expect much more PIM-performances like this -- he's only earned four game misconduct penalties in his career.

Flyers' Lecavalier Nets Goal, 900th Career Point

News: Vincent Lecavalier scored the game-winner in overtime in Sunday's 5-4 win over the Capitals.
Analysis: Two goals in two consecutive games, and a three-game point streak is a promising start to the final stretch of the season. Owners will hope Vincent Lecavalier can erupt for a multi-point game soon -- he hasn't had one in over 25 games.

Flyers' Lecavalier Closing In On Milestone

News: Vincent Lecavalier kicked off the Flyers' 4-2 victory over the Rangers on Saturday with a first-period tally.
Analysis: The goal was his 13th of the season and gives him 899 points for his career. He'll look to reach the milestone total when the Flyers take the ice Sunday vs. the Capitals.

Flyers' Lecavalier Settling In At Wing

News: Vincent Lecavalier is feeling more comfortable in his new role at left wing, reports Sarah Baicker of CSNPhilly.com.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier has struggled since returning from a back injury, posting just nine points in 24 games. With the Flyers stacked at the center position, Lecavalier was shifted to the wing position a few games before the Olympics. Owners should keep a close eye on him in the coming games -- if his production doesn't improve, he may not be worth a regular start.

Flyers' Lecavalier Scores In Loss

News: Vincent Lecavalier managed to tie the game at 1-1 before the Ducks took over and iced Thursday's game 5-3.
Analysis: Vincent Lecavalier also posted a not-so-fashionable minus-3 rating on the evening. He has been what most expected him to be this year: an aging forward who still has a penchant for scoring. His 12 goals on the season won't cause Flyers' GM Paul Holmgren to erect a statue in his honor, but if he can remain healthy, he's still worth consistent starts in your lineup.

Lecavalier Pots Late Winner For Flyers

News: Vincent Lecavalier's goal with 15 seconds remaining in the third period was the difference-maker in Tuesday's 4-3 win over Buffalo.
Analysis: It was a nice goal off a fine pass out of a net-mouth scramble by Matt Read, with Vincent Lecavalier just letting it rip past a helpless Jhonas Enroth. Lecavalier's been better lately, with four points in his last six games -- not great, but worlds better than the one point he put up in the prior eight. Still, he doesn't have a multi-point game since Nov. 12, and though obviously the breakout potential is there, he's looking like a bust already in Year 1 of a five-year contract that has him signed through age 37.
