Flyers place Vincent Lecavalier on IR, recall Tye McGinn

Philadelphia, PA, United States (4E Sports) - The Philadelphia Flyers have recalled forward Tye McGinn from their American Hockey League (AHL) team after placing center Vincent Lecavalier on injured reserve with a non-displaced fracture in his lower back.
McGinn, who will fill Lecavalier's roster spot, has three goals in six games with the Flyers this season. He has six goals and seven points in 17 games for the Adirondack Phantoms, where he serves as the team's alternate captain.
Earlier, the club announced that Lecavalier is expected to be out at least 3-4 weeks.
Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said Lecavalier skated Saturday in Dallas, but that his back tightened and became sore as the day progressed.
"He had an X-ray in Dallas and they found something on the X-ray that didn't look right, so we flew him back to Philadelphia [on Sunday] to get him into our own doctors' hands," Holmgren said.
Holmgren added that Lecavalier underwent MRI where the non-displaced fracture in his lower back was discovered.
