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 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.

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

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.

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 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.
