  • Penguins' Michael Leighton: Returning to action in minors

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/9/18) 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 | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/28/17) 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.

    Coyotes' Michael Leighton: Called up from AHL Chicago

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/11/17) 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 | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/21/17) 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.

    Coyotes' Michael Leighton: Headed to the desert

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/14/17) 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.
