Lightning C Lecavalier out indefinitely due to undisclosed lower body injury

TAMPA, Fla. - Tampa Bay Lightning centre Vincent Lecavalier is out indefinitely because of an undisclosed lower body injury.

The Lightning placed the star forward on the injured list Thursday before they hosted the New York Islanders.

Lecavalier, who has seven goals and 22 points in 26 games this season, was hurt Tuesday night in a game at Florida.

Tampa Bay recalled forward Tyler Johnson from Syracuse of the AHL to take Lecavalier's roster spot.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
