Lightning C Vincent Lecavalier out indefinitely with broken right hand

TAMPA, Fla. - Tampa Bay Lightning captain Vincent Lecavalier is out indefinitely because of broken right hand.

The Lightning said Tuesday night, during the first period of their game against Anaheim, that Lecavalier has a non-displaced fracture.

Lecavalier was hurt Saturday night during Tampa Bay's 2-1 win over Washington, but remained in the game. He underwent tests on Monday after leaving practice early.

Lecavalier has 21 goals and 46 points in 58 games this season. He has reached 20 goals in 12 consecutive seasons.

Quote of the Day

When somebody goes out and is there to score goals, but is also there to make some big hits, fight, do all of those things, and he has a great mustache, it was great to see him get that hit and get everybody going.
