  • Lightning's Michael Leighton: Takes preseason loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/20/17) 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.

    Lightning's Michael Leighton: Will square off against Carolina

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/19/17) Leighton will patrol the blue paint versus the Hurricanes on Tuesday, Bryan Burns of NHL.com reports.

    Leighton is unlikely to dethrone Peter Budaj from the No. 2 role in Tampa Bay, with AHL Syracuse his probable landing spot for 2017-18. Even though it's only a preseason contest, the 36-year-old Leighton should be motivated to perform well against his former club.

    Lightning's Michael Leighton: Important AHL depth for team with Cup aspirations

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/1/17) Leighton signed a a one-year, two-way contract with the Lightning on Saturday.

    Leighton is now 36 and his best is behind him. He did see action in four games with the Canes last season, going 2-2-0-0 with a 3.43 GAA and .870 save percentage. Leighton spent most of last season with the AHL Charolette Checkers and went 11-7-3 in 23 games. He recorded a 2.17 GAA and .921 save percentage.

    Hurricanes' Michael Leighton: Out 4-to-6 weeks with undisclosed ailment

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/15/17) Leighton -- a depth goalie for Hurricanes affiliate AHL Charlotte -- will undergo surgery as the result of an undisclosed injury that will keep him shelved for 4-to-6 weeks.

    As noted in this latest report, Leighton had been dominant in the minors this season, fashioning a 2.17 GAA over 23 games -- tied for fourth in the league. Tom McCollum was loaned from Calgary's system at the AHL trade deadline and will serve as the replacement.

    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.
