Michael Leighton is dealing with a lower-body injury.
Leighton is regarded as being week-to-week. The Penguins acquired him from Arizona on Dec. 19 and then sent him to the minors. The fact that he's injured is particularly noteworthy at the moment because Penguins backup goaltender Tristan Jarry was hurt on Tuesday. If Pittsburgh needs to call up a goaltender, then Leighton won't be an option. Casey DeSmith, who has been summoned by Pittsburgh before due to goaltending injuries, will likely be called up again if needed. Jan 4 - 11:00 AM
