Report: Lecavalier has broken foot

Tampa, FL (Sports Network) - Tampa Bay Lightning captain Vincent Lecavalier is reportedly nursing a broken foot and could be sidelined for three weeks.

The Lightning placed Lecavalier on injured reserve March 14 with what the team termed a lower-body injury. He last played two days earlier in a 3-2 win against Florida.

A report Tuesday from the Tampa Bay Times detailed the injury, saying it is a minor fracture that may be near or at the same spot where Lecavalier suffered a bone bruise after being hit by a shot on Feb. 2.

The paper also said Lecavalier won't travel with the team for a three-game road trip that starts Wednesday in Toronto.

Lecavalier has posted seven goals and 22 points through 26 games this season.
