At 32, Vinny Lecavalier is in the best shape he's been in years and with four points in three games, he has no signs of slowing down - and the 14-year veteran likes it that way.
Last Monday, the Lightning captain played in his 1,000th game - all with Tampa Bay, a milestone only four other No. 1 overall picks have accomplished with their drafting team.
Tonight, Lecavalier will be honored by the Lightning for his accomplishment before the puck drops against the Senators. Tampa Bay will present the Montreal native with a traditional inscribed silver stick in an eight-minute pre-game ceremony in which Lecavalier also will also be honored by his teammates.
Over the years, trade rumors were rampant and in 2009 Lecavalier was a free agent. He signed a blockbuster 11-year deal valued at $85 million to remain a Bolt, and if he stays healthy, the 1998 No. 1 overall pick would like nothing more than to see that contract out.
Lecavalier joined Tom and Rick on The Sports Page Friday morning and talked about the importance of playing every game of his career for Tampa Bay, how he feels physically, and how much longer he'd like to play. The full audio of the interview can be found below:
