The Maple Leafs signed David Booth to a one-year contract worth $1.1 million.
Booth, 29, recorded nine goals and 10 assists (19 points) in 66 games with the Canucks last season. Booth has had a difficult time staying healthy in recent years. Over the last three season Booth has missed 72 of 212 games (34%). At $1.1 million for one season, Booth is a low-risk signing for the Maple Leafs.
Booth will be a healthy scratch for the second straight game.
Booth has not recorded a point in his last five games and only has 10 points (5G / 5A) in 32 games this season. The one-time 30-goal scorer and three-time 20-goal man is just a shade of his former self.
Booth was a healthy scratch for the third straight game on Saturday, but will get back in the lineup tonight vs. Los Angeles. In 13 games this season Booth has one goal and two assists. Booth is expected to skate on the fourth line.
Booth will sit while Dale Wiese reenters the lineup after missing the last 10 games with a leg injury. Booth failed to record a point in either of his first two games since returning from a lower-body injury.
The Canucks have recalled David Booth from his conditioning stint with Utica (AHL).
Booth had one assist and a minus-1 rating in three games with Utica. He will return to the Canucks where he has one goal and two assists in 11 games. In his three years in Vancouver he has had a hard time staying healthy and has only been able to muster 35 points (18G / 17A) in 79 games. Booth should be in the lineup on Thursday.
Booth was injured on Thursday and missed Friday's game. He will be out for the shortest amount of time compared to the other injured Canucks forwards. Vancouver is still waiting for the former 30-goal scorer to stay healthy and produce. To this point he has only appeared in 79 games in three seasons while scoring just 18 goals with the Canucks.
David Booth has been medically cleared to play and will play for #Canucks vs. #Blackhawks tonight.
Booth has yet to play this season but would be a welcomed addition to an already strong Canucks lineup. Booth ahad 16 G and 14 A in 68 games last season and has been a solid scorer his whole career. He is likely available in a lot of leagues and could have a solid impact on our fantasy lineup when he gets back into game shape.
