News: The Chicago Blackhawks have signed goaltender Michael Leighton to a one-year contract. The 33-year-old Leighton provides some organizational depth behind starter Corey Crawford and backup Antti Raanta. Barring injury, he could spend much of the year with Chicago's AHL affiliate in Rockford. Impact: Leighton was drafted by Chicago in the sixth round of the 1999 draft and made his NHL debut with the Blackhawks in January 2003. He has a 35-41-14 record with a 2.97 goals-against average in parts of eight seasons with Chicago, Nashville, Philadelphia and Carolina.(STATS, 2:51pm)

News: Leighton signed a one-year contract with the Blackhawks on Monday, NHL.com's Dan Rosen reports. Impact: Leighton will most likely start the season in the AHL, as Corey Crawford and Antti Raanta top the depth chart for the Blackhawks. He will provide the team with depth at the position, however, and could find his way up if either netminder goes down with an injury.(RotoWire, )
