  • 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.

    Hurricanes' Michael Leighton: Makes 17 saves in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/21/17) Leighton made just 17 saves in a 3-2 loss to Columbus on Saturday.

    The lights are barely on for this struggling 35-year-old netminder. This was Leighton's third start this season and his record is 2-2. But he's going nowhere fast with an .870 save percentage.

    Hurricanes' Michael Leighton: Starting Saturday in Columbus

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/21/17) Leighton will guard the goal in Saturday's road game against the Blue Jackets.

    Leighton hasn't played well in limited action with the big club this season, posting a 2-1-0 record with an ugly 3.53 GAA and .875 save percentage over three appearances. The 35-year-old backstop will look to get on track in a highly unfavorable road matchup with a Blue Jackets team that's averaging an impressive 3.61 goals per game at home this season, second in the NHL.
