Lecavalier (foot) will resume skating on his own Friday, Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

Though the fact that he's back on the ice creates some optimism, 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.

Lecavalier walked out of the arena Saturday wearing a walking boot on his left foot, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

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.

Lecavalier picked up a goal and an assist in Thursday's loss to the Devils.

After a poor 2013-14 and a quiet game in the opener, it's good for fantasy owners and Flyers fans alike to see 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.

After ending the season being benched in the final period of the game seven playoff loss to the Rangers, Flyers Center Vincent Lecavalier said he is optimistic about his opportunities this season, reports Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia.

Lecavalier was even more enthusiastic about this season after learning that Flyers 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.

Vincent Lecavalier isn't likely to be traded to Ottawa.

He has four years left on a contract that carries a cap hit of $4.5 million per season. The Senators would want Philadelphia to retain $2 million per season, but the Flyers aren't keen on doing that. Ottawa may also want to send another unfavorable contract back Philadelphia's way, but that wouldn't fit the Flyers' agenda because they are trying to clear cap space. A deal between the two sides isn't believed to be close and Lecavalier's no-trade clause could halt the move anyway.

The Philadelphia Flyers were reportedly very close to trading center Vincent Lecavalier to Nashville Monday.

The terms of the proposed deal are not known, but it's being reported that the Predators were very close to taking on the next two years of a deal that pays the forward for two more beyond that, but the pact hit a snag and the deal fell through. It's no secret that Philly would like to rid itself of the veteran forward in order to create much-needed cap space, but they have yet to find any takers.

The Philadelphia Flyers were unable to unload Vincent Lecavalier at the draft.

The Flyers really want to rid themselves of Lecavalier's onerous contract as he is still owed $18 million over the next four years with a no-movement clause. A buyout is the most logical step as the Flyers are currently over the salary cap and it is unlikely that any NHL team will help them out. Look for Lecavalier to be looking for a new home by Tuesday which is the start of free agency. Lecavalier had 20 goals and 37 points in 69 games with a terrible minus-16 rating and chipped in with a goal and an assist in seven playoff games against the Rangers.

Philadelphia have given Vincent Lecavalier's agent permission to speak with other teams.

He will receive a $2 million bonus on July 1, so the cap-stricken Flyers don't have much time to deal him before that happens.

Vincent Lecavalier isn't asking for the Flyers to trade him just yet, according to his agent Kent Hughes.

"If [Craig] Berube wants him as a fourth-line center, Philly is not going to pay him those dollars but we haven't specifically asked for a trade nor have they come to us saying they want to trade him," said Hughes. Lecavalier has a no-movement clause in a contract that will earn him $4.5 million for the next four years. Philadelphia is still deciding how best to proceed with him, but he could end up on the trading block.
