  • Blackhawks' Michael Leighton: Makes first NHL appearance in three years

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/22/16) 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.
