Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Mark Zwolinski of the Toronto Star,
Flyers goalie Michael Leighton is the only starter in the NHL who still lives out of a hotel.
The 28-year-old native of Sarnia holds that title because he landed the No. 1 spot less than two months ago, despite a seven-year career.
Before being known for hotel home, he was mostly known for being placed on waivers.
To date, Leighton has been waived four times, once after playing only 20 minutes in Nashville. He’s also been traded twice and signed as a free agent once, with Anaheim. Now, after more than two months with the Flyers, Leighton may be able to stop counting.
Despite being a lock for the Flyers job, Leighton knows how fleeting the position can be at times.
