Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren called a Sunday night conference call which is not usually a good sign. Holmgren announced that Lecavalier would miss 3-4 weeks of action with a non-displaced fracture in his lower back. Lecavalier returned to Philadelphia yesterday to have his back re-evaluated.
Lecavalier, 33, has been great in his first season with the Flyers. In 22 games, he is tied with Matt Read for the team-lead in goals with nine and is tied with Read and Sean Couturier for third in points with 14. His loss will be felt on the Flyers second line and on the power play.
