Vincent Lecavalier is doing everything he can to get back into the lineup.
Set to sit out a fifth straight game as a healthy scratch, the veteran forward has been doing all he can to show head coach Craig Berube that he can still make a positive contribution for the Philadelphia Flyers.
"You know it is frustrating, and I have been practicing hard and trying to get ready for the next time I am called," Lecavalier told Marc Narducci of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
He added Berube has given him no indication as to when he'll be slotted back into the lineup, while the head coach offered the following encouraging words in regards to Lecavalier's work ethic under the trying circumstances.
"I am sure it is not easy," Berube said. "He has worked extremely hard since he has been out and has a good attitude."
Signed to a five-year, $22-million contract prior to last season, Lecavalier recorded two goals and four assists in 16 games this season.
The Flyers have gone 1-1-2 in the four games in which Lecavalier has been scratched.
