Tampa, FL, United States (4E Sports) - The Tampa Bay Lightning will pay tribute to their former captain and franchise goal-scoring leader Vincent Lecavalier Tuesday during their game against the Florida Panthers at Amalie Arena.
The No. 1 pick in the 1998 NHL Draft, Lecavalier scored 383 goals in 1,037 games during 14 seasons with the Lightning, leading them to the Stanley Cup in 2004.
Lecavalier , who won the Maurice Richard Trophy as the NHL's top goal scorer with 52 goals in 2006-07, retired on June 21 after finishing the 2015-16 season with the Los Angeles Kings. He also played with the Philadelphia Flyers for 2 1/2 seasons.
Aside from his outstanding play, Lecavalier has been lauded for his work with young cancer patients, pledging $3 million to the All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg.
" Vinny was a guy that I leaned on a lot as I came into the league because he was someone that went through what I was going through," said Lightning captain Steven Stamkos .
"So he was there in that regard. Obviously he was a tremendous player and a great leader," he added.
