  • Leighton made 19 saves in a 4-2 loss to the Rangers on Saturday. Leighton's second game this season wasn't nearly as impressive as his first. His record is now 1-1 with six goals against in two games. Leighton is best left on the wire.

  • Leighton will guard the cage in Saturday's road game against the Rangers. Leighton was sharp in his only start of the season, stopping 31 of 33 shots in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Panthers. The 35-year-old goaltender will look to stay hot in a highly unfavorable road matchup with the Rangers' league-leading offense.

  • Leighton made 31 saves and picked up an assist in a 3-2 win over the Panthers on Sunday evening. Leighton hadn't appeared in an NHL game since 2012-13 and hadn't registered a win since 2010-11. Nice night, but his value is negligible.

  • Leighton will start in the crease for Sunday's game against Florida, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports. The veteran, who hasn't started more than one NHL game in a season since 2009-10, will get his first start of this year Sunday. He has a .937 save percentage and a 1.66 goals against average with AHL Charlotte this year, so he's proven himself to be solid in the minors, whether that translates to the NHL is yet to be seen. The Florida Panthers aren't a top offensive team this season, so he won't have the worst matchup for a debut.

  • Leighton was promoted from AHL Charlotte on Monday. Leighton will serve as the team's backup netminder behind Cam Ward following Eddie Lack's (concussion) placement on injured reserve Monday. While the veteran netminder does have a history in the NHL, it's unlikely he will see much action between the pipes and his stay stay at the top level will likely be a short one.
