Lightning’s Lecavalier sidelined indefinitely

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tampa Bay Lightning captain Vincent Lecavalier will be sidelined indefinitely because of an undisclosed upper-body injury.

The team announced the news before Tuesday night’s game against Anaheim.

Lecavalier was hurt in last Saturday night’s 2-1 win over Washington, but remained in the game. He underwent tests on Monday after departing practice early.

Lecavalier has 21 goals and 46 points in 58 games this season. The center has reached the 20-goal plateau in 12 consecutive seasons.
