The Nashville Predators have claimed goaltender Michael Leighton off re-entry waivers from the Anaheim Ducks.

Undoubtedly, Leighton will be used to backup Chris Mason while the Predators wait for number one goaltender Tomas Vokoun to mend. The Predators had been using Karl Goehring as Mason's backup.

The Ducks were forced recall Leighton from the minors because Jean-Sebastien Giguere and Ilya Bryzgalov were injured. While waiting for Leighton to clear waivers, however, the Ducks were forced to call upon minor-leaguer Michael Wall for last night's game against Calgary. Wall was not subject to league waiver rules and ended up beat the Flames.
