General manager Paul Holmgren gave an update on the center's condition and it wasn't exactly good news all around. The Courier Post's Dave Isaac reports the 33-year-old is dealing with back spasms in addition to his fracture. Holmgren said the spasms have gotten smaller and are contained to the fracture area but until they are completely gone, Lecavalier will be limited in his rehabilitation.
The good news is Lecavalier felt good enough to take part in morning skate on Tuesday prior to the Flyers game against the Washington Capitals.
Lecavalier, 33, has been great in his first season with the Flyers. In 22 games, he is still tied with Matt Read for the team-lead in goals with nine and is seventh on the team in points with 14 despite playing 10-11 fewer games than everyone else ahead of him.
