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.

Lecavalier (foot) took part in Tuesday's morning skate, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Lecavalier (foot) could return as soon as Thursday's game against Tampa Bay, Wayne Fish of the Burlington County Times reports.

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.

Lecavalier (foot) was placed on injured reserve Friday, CSNPhilly.com's Sarah Baicker reports.

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.

Lecavalier (foot) said he will most realistically return to action next Thursday against the Lightning, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

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.
