Michael Leighton, AHLien

Jan 4, 2011, 2:02 PM EDT

Flyers goalie Michael Leighton has cleared waivers. There was some speculation last night that the Islanders could put in a claim for him with Rick DiPietro felled by an injury on the same night Leighton was waived, but they didn't. For now, Leighton will get some work in with the Phantoms, and barring injury or trade, it's unlikely we'll see him back with the big club any time soon.
