The Flyers are in the hunt for 6-foot-4, 208-pound veteran center Vinny Lecavalier, an NHL source confirmed.
In fact, Flyers officials met with the unrestricted free agent on Saturday. Several teams are trying to lure him. Free agents can sign on Friday.
Lecavalier is still productive after all these years. He is a terrific playmaker and would provide the Flyers with some needed size and physicality at center.
A four-time all-star, Lecavalier, 33, had 10 goals and 32 points in 39 games with Tampa Bay this season. Lecavalier's contract was bought out by the Lightning a few days ago. He had over $32 million left on a deal that ran through 2019-20.
