Lightning forward Vincent Lecavalier has a “minor fracture” in his left foot, according to a report in the Tampa Bay Times.

The paper reports that Lecavalier, who has not played since Tuesday when he suffered the injury in a collision with Panthers defenseman Erik Gudbranson, will stay home for his team’s three-game road trip that ends Sunday in Winnipeg. The 32-year-old could apparently be back by early April.

“A little bit of a waiting game,” Lecavalier said, “and then work out hard and be ready to play.”

The Lightning — winners of three of their last four, but still five points back of a playoff spot — play the Leafs in Toronto tomorrow evening.
