PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Philadelphia Flyers forward Vinny Lecavalier could miss a month because of a non-displaced fracture in his lower back.

Lecavalier has already missed three games due to back spasms. He leads the Flyers with five power-play goals and has scored nine times overall. He is tied for fourth on the team with 14 points in 22 games.

Lecavalier signed a five-year, $22.5 million contract in the offseason. Lecavalier, a 6-foot-4, 208-pound center, spent 14 years with Tampa Bay.
