  • Leighton was reassigned to AHL Tuscon on Thursday. Despite getting called up to the big stage Monday, Leighton didn't see any action in road games versus the Ducks and Golden Knights, respectively. The lanky goalie is best viewed as an emergency option for a Coyotes team that's caught in the cellar of the league standings.

  • 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.

    Leighton was loaned to AHL Chicago on Tuesday.

    Leighton was acquired by the Coyotes on Tuesday, along with Tye McGinn, in return for Louis Domingue, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports. Leighton wasn't able to crack the Tampa Bay roster during his limited time there and heads west to likely serve as the minor-league goalie for the Coyotes as an insurance policy for Antti Raanta and Scott Wedgewood. The Coyotes organization will be the ninth one that Leighton has been a part of during his career, which generally speaks to the level of play that is expected out of him.

  • Lightning's Michael Leighton: Takes preseason loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Leighton allowed two goals on 22 shots in Tuesday's 2-1 preseason defeat to Carolina. The 36-year-old Leighton played the entirety of the contest against one of his many former teams. A career journeyman, Leighton was great with AHL Charlotte last season, posting a 2.17 GAA and .921 save percentage, and he should be a good depth option in the event that NHL goalies Andrei Vasilevskiy or Peter Budaj get hurt.
