  • Leighton gave up one goal on 17 shots in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Stars. The netminder relieved Scott Darling after the first period. Leighton was recalled on March 17 due to Corey Crawford's upper-body injury, and unfortunately was pressed into duty with Darling struggling to keep ahold of the Dallas offense. The 34-year-old netminder had not made an NHL appearance since January 2013 with the Flyers, so dusting off is an understatement for Leighton. Even still, it's tough to envision the 1999 sixth-round pick making any sort of impact on Chicago moving forward.

Leighton was recalled Thursday to supply the Blackhawks with additional depth at goaltender while Corey Crawford, who is day-to-day with an upper-body injury, is sidelined. The 34-year-old netminder has been decent in the minors this season, compiling a 26-8-0 record with a 2.44 GAA and .918 save percentage in 46 appearances. The former sixth-round pick will likely be returned to AHL Rockford as soon as Crawford is healthy.
