Statement Regarding Lightning Assistant Coach Wayne Fleming

by Staff Writer / Tampa Bay Lightning

Tampa Bay Lightning assistant coach Wayne Fleming is home resting comfortably after undergoing a procedure on Thursday, April 7 at the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute in Tampa. Fleming was recently diagnosed as having a primary brain tumor.

Fleming, in his first season behind the bench with the Lightning, will follow a treatment schedule as prescribed by doctors pending oncology test results. The depth of Fleming's involvement with the Lightning during the postseason will be based on his level of comfort during the treatment process.

No further comment from Fleming or the team is available at this time.
