Vincent Lecavalier out 4-5 weeks
The team said the operation was performed Monday in Cleveland by Dr. Tom Graham, who inserted a plate and screws to secure an "unstable fracture."
Lecavalier was injured during a game at Washington on Nov. 11. He has three goals and six assists in 10 games this season.
