04:18 PM ET 04.04 | Tampa Bay Lightning captain Vincent Lecavalier is expected to play in Thursday night's game against the Carolina Hurricanes, according to multiple reports from morning skate. Lecavalier has been out of the lineup since sustaining a broken bone in his foot on March 12. He was placed on injured reserve on March 14 and has missed the team's last nine games. He returned to practice on Tuesday in a non-contact sweater and was believed to be nearing a return. Many projected Thursday night as a possibility. Lecavalier has registered seven goals and 15 assists for 22 points in 26 games played this season.

I was half expecting him to be on the trade block yesterday.

Don't forget to take the non-contact sweater off Thursday, Vinni

I was too. Don't know if he has a no trade clause or not, but he'd look good in a Habs jersey.
