The Flyers visit the Tampa Bay Lightning for the first time this season on Thanksgiving Eve, and for Lecavalier, it will be his first game at the Tampa Bay Times Forum as a visitor. He spent 14 seasons with the Lightning before being bought out last summer and quickly snapped up by the Flyers.
"It's obviously going to be a special day," Lecavalier said. "I'll be excited about it -- going back into the building, a different entranceway, different locker room. But I'm excited about it. I'm excited to play against my ex-teammates, friends, play in front of family. It's going to be a lot of fun."
Lecavalier will be honored as the Lightning's community hero and a video tribute will be shown on the scoreboard.
