    Kings' Vincent Lecavalier: Notches fifth goal as King on Tuesday

    Lecavalier notched his fourth power play goal in 11 games since joining the Kings in a 6-2 win Tuesday. Lecavalier has seven points (five goals, two assists) in 11 games with Los Angeles with the majority of his production coming on the power play.

    Kings' Vincent Lecavalier: Scores third goal in three games

    Lecavalier scored a power-play goal Tuesday against Dallas in a 3-2 win. Lecavalier now has three goals in three games, all of them on the power play. At 35 years old, Lecavalier isn't very mobile anymore but still has a very good shot, something Darryl Sutter obviously recognized and utilized to good effect so far. All of Lecavalier's goals have come in a Kings sweater, and also played center Tuesday against Dallas. His hot streak is unlikely to last, but count Lecavalier as yet another veteran who has found new life under Sutter.

    Flyers' Vincent Lecavalier: Dealt to LA

    The Flyers traded Lecavalier and Luke Schenn to the Kings in exchange for Jordan Weal and a third-round draft pick on Wednesday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports. The Flyers' are reportedly retaining half of Lecavalier and Schenn's salaries, but are still freeing up over $4 million in cap space, which will give the team some major roster flexibility, and allow them to acquire more players via trade if they desire. Lecavalier is well past his prime, and has only played in seven contests with Philadelphia this season, notching a single assist in those games. It isn't clear what kind of opportunity he'll get with the Kings, but with Weal on his way to the Flyers, he'll at least provide LA with additional depth at center.

    Flyers' Vincent Lecavalier: Participates in Thursday's morning skate

    Lecavalier (back) took part in Thursday's morning skate, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Lecavalier's presence at Thursday's morning skate indicates the veteran forward has recovered from the stiff back that held him out of Philadelphia's Dec. 8 matchup with the Islanders. Lecavalier likely wouldn't have suited up for that contest even if he wasn't hampered by a back issue, as the 35-year-old center has been a healthy scratch for all but seven of Philadelphia's games this season. The former first-round pick has tallied a single assist in seven contests this year.

    Flyers' Vincent Lecavalier: Scratched from lineup again

    Lecavalier was once again not in the lineup for Thursday's 4-2 win over St. Louis. It's been a challenging year for Lecavalier, who's appeared in just seven games and has only one point on the season. More recently he was dealing with a stiff back, according to Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer, though general manager Ron Hextall seems reticent to call it quits on the aging center just yet. Fantasy owners, on the other hand, should feel less reticent.

    Flyers' Vincent Lecavalier: Tallies assist in season debut Thursday

    Lecavalier got an assist in his season debut Thursday, a 4-1 loss to the Devils. Lecavalier skated a team-low 7:16, finishing plus-1 with a shot. The veteran was forced into the lineup due to an injury to center Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, but was actually pretty productive. We all know what Lecavalier has done in the past, so there's a chance he may get some extra playing time if Bellemare remains sidelined. That doesn't mean you should rush to add him, but he's worth monitoring.

    Flyers' Vincent Lecavalier: To make season debut Thursday

    Lecavalier will make his season debut Thursday night against the visiting Devils, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Lecavalier warmed the bench for Philly's first eight games, but an apparent lower-body injury to center Pierre-Edouard Bellemare has prompted the team to give Lecavalier another look. We're talking about a guy that dropped 108 points with the Lightning a decade ago, so he clearly knows what it takes to put the puck past goalies, but he's 35 years old now and has seen his point totals drop in each successive year since 2009-10. Assuming he can start drawing into the lineup more regularly, Lecavalier could show up on the scoresheet on occassion, but temper your expectations as he's definitely not the player he once was.
