Former Lightning captain Vincent Lecavalier returns to Tampa with the Flyers.
Nov. 27, 2013: Philadelphia at Tampa Bay
Vincent Lecavalier returns to Tampa Bay for the first time in a Flyers uniform on Nov. 23.
Lecavalier spent 14 seasons with the Lightning after they selected him with the first overall pick in the 1998 NHL draft.
There was pressure on Lecavalier from the beginning as he was viewed as the savior of the franchise. In fact, the owner of the Lightning at that time, Art Williams, called Lecavalier "the Michael Jordan of hockey" before he had even played a game in the NHL.
While success wasn't immediate, Lecavalier went on to become captain of the Bolts and helped lead them to a Stanley Cup victory in 2004.
In 1,037 games with the Lightning, Lecavalier scored 383 goals and 874 points.
In 2006-07, he won the Rocket Richard Trophy after leading the NHL with 52 goals.
The Lightning bought out his contract this summer and he signed with the Flyers. It will be interesting to see how the fans in Tampa respond to Lecavalier's return.
