from the Tampa Bay Lightning,
Tampa Bay Lightning captain Vincent Lecavalier will not play in tonight’s game against the Anaheim Ducks due to an undisclosed upper-body injury that head coach Guy Boucher said “popped up” on Monday at the team’s practice, during which Lecavalier left the ice early.
He is out indefinitely, with no certain timetable for a return. Shortly following his early exit from the rink on Monday, Lecavalier had an MRI exam which he says “revealed no gray areas” and on Tuesday, following the team’s morning skate, stated that he does not believe surgery will be necessary. Still, the timing of the injury is one the captain said is “unfortunate.”
continued and Lecavalier was seen this morning wearing a soft cast on his right hand/wrist.
