The Pittsburgh Penguins have acquired goaltender Michael Leighton and a 2019 fourth-round draft pick in exchange for forward Josh Archibald, goaltender Sean Maguire, and a 2019 sixth-round pick.

Leighton has spent nearly all of the past four seasons in the AHL, but the 36-year-old does have experience in an NHL crease from earlier in his career, with the Philadelphia Flyers, Carolina Hurricanes, and Chicago Blackhawks.

Archibald, 25, has appeared in three games with the Penguins this season.

Maguire, 24, has spent this season in the AHL and ECHL, posting a .924 save percentage in four games with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.
