  • Canucks' Michael Leighton: Signs, lands on waivers
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Canucks inked Leighton to a contract Tuesday after playing with Utica, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports. He has also been placed on waivers with the intention of sending him to AHL Utica. Leighton's deal is likely of the two-way variety and should extend through the end of the 2018-19 campaign. The 37-year-old netminder has posted a 6-1-0 record with a 2.53 GAA and a .915 save percentage over seven appearances with Utica and could be a candidate for recall if injuries take their toll on the team's NHL netminders.

  • Leighton (undisclosed) will suit up for AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Friday versus Binghamton. Leighton has been sidelined since late December due to his undisclosed injury, but will return to the crease for the Baby Pens. This is good news for Pittsburgh's minor-league affiliate, as an injury to Matt Murray (concussion) has forced the organization to keep both Tristan Jarry and Casey DeSmith in the NHL.

  • Penguins' Michael Leighton: Dealing with injury
    By RotoWire Staff

    Leighton is day-to-day with an undisclosed injury, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. While minor-league injury news rarely affects fantasy owners, Leighton's status will impact the Pens' decision on who to call up to fill the backup role with Matt Murray (undisclosed) currently sidelined. Casey DeSmith might seem like the obvious choice, but with Leighton unavailable, that would leave the Baby Pens without a viable option between the pipes.

  • Leighton was promoted from the minors Monday. Leighton 's recall could be simply a paper transaction in order to help the Yotes reach the salary cap floor -- rather than an indication that Antti Raanta or Scott Wedgewood is dealing with an injury. Arizona is off until Thursday, so look for any potential injury updates from the team in the coming days.

  • Coyotes' Michael Leighton: Sent to minors
    By RotoWire Staff

    Leighton was loaned to AHL Chicago on Tuesday. With Antti Raanta and Scott Wedgewood cemented as the top two goalies in Arizona, there is no need for Leighton to be around the big club, and he will get some meaningful ice time with the Wolves instead. He should probably not be counted on for fantasy production at any time.
