The Tampa Bay Lightning announced Thursday that they will use a compliance buyout on captain Vincent Lecavalier.

Lecavalier’s buyout is set to cost $32.67 million over the next 14 years.

“Vinny has been a significant reason for many of our past successes, including the 2004 Stanley Cup, and his contributions to the community are immeasurable,” Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman said in a press release. “The Lightning organization is indebted to Vinny; we thank him for all he has done here and we wish him well as he moves forward.”
