 RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -The Carolina Hurricanes agreed to terms Friday with goaltender Michael Leighton on a one-year contract.
Leighton's two-way deal would pay him $550,000 at the NHL level and $100,000 if he is in the minor leagues. The Hurricanes acquired Leighton from Montreal for a seventh-round draft pick.
Leighton, 26, spent time with the Anaheim, Nashville, Philadelphia and Montreal organizations during the 2006-07 season. In five regular-season NHL games with Nashville and Philadelphia, Leighton went 2-2 with a 3.94 goals-against average.
He was 10-6-3 with a 2.14 GAA in 21 regular-season games in the AHL. Leighton was a sixth-round pick by Chicago in the 1999 draft.
