  • Hurricanes' Michael Leighton: Sent to AHL on Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/26/17) Leighton was assigned to AHL Charlotte on Thursday.

    The 35-year-old has only played in four games this year, allowing 12 goals on 92 shots, so he hasn't been great in his limited action. He has a .918 save percentage and 2.32 GAA in the AHL though, so he has been solid in the minors, where he will likely stay unless the Hurricanes need goalie depth again.
