Vincent Lecavalier C PHI 1 Day

Coach Craig Berube said after Wednesday's practice that there is a "good chance" Lecavalier will play Thursday against the Panthers, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.

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.

Lecavalier is fully recovered from the lower-body injury he sustained last week, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

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 Lecavalier to a regular role in the near future.

Lecavalier (hip) will return to the ice for practice Monday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

With six points in 16 games, Lecavalier is on pace to have his worse 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.

Lecavalier is dealing with a lower-body injury, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Given that 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.

Lecavalier will be a healthy scratch for the fourth straight game Tuesday against the Blue Jackets, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.

It remains to be seen when 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.

Lecavalier will be a healthy scratch for Tuesday's game against the Sharks, the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

Tuesday night will mark the first time in 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.

Lecavalier captured an assist in Thursday's loss to the Wild.

With just three points in eight November games thus far, it doesn't look like 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.

Lecavalier (foot) will be activated from injured reserve and play Saturday against the Panthers, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

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.
