Tampa Bay Lightning, Teddy Purcell expect pre-arbitration deal

The arbitration hearing for the Lightning and right wing Teddy Purcell is July 20 in Toronto. Both sides have said they expect to reach a contract deal before the hearing takes place.

Purcell, 25, who made $750,000 in 2010-11, had a breakout season with career highs of 17 goals, 34 assists and 51 points in 81 games. He also had five goals and 17 points in 18 playoff games.

FLEMING UPDATE: Assistant coach Wayne Fleming still is in a California hospital getting chemotherapy and radiation treatments, said general manager Steve Yzerman, who added that Fleming also is rehabbing to "improve his motor skills" after April brain cancer surgery.

Yzerman has said Fleming's job is waiting for him.

"All things considered," Yzerman said, "he's doing well."
