TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Tampa Bay Lightning captain Vincent Lecavalier is back after missing 15 games due to a right hand injury.
Lecavalier was in the lineup for Wednesday night's game against Atlanta. He resumed practicing with the team Tuesday.
The center had surgery on Nov. 15 to insert a plate and screws to secure an unstable fracture.
Lecavalier was injured during a game at Washington on Nov. 11.
