The Maple Leafs have assigned David Booth (foot) to the Toronto Marlies (AHL) on a conditioning assignment.
Booth returned to practice at the start of the week as he works his way back from a broken foot that he suffered in the preseason. He was originally expected to be out 4-6 weeks, but today marks the 10 1/2 week mark. He is expected to play with the Marlies tonight and likely Sunday, before returning to the Maple Leafs next week.
Booth (foot) is skating for the first time since fracturing his foot in late September.
Booth has not made his Maple Leafs debut yet and he is behind schedule in his return, but getting on the ice is finally a step in the right direction. He is six weeks removed from the fractured foot, but is probably still two weeks away from playing.
Booth (foot) is "a long ways away" said coach Carlyle on Thursday.
Booth took a spin on the ice this morning for the first time since he fractured his foot in late September. His original timetable was four weeks and he is already past that mark. The Leafs later said it would be more like six weeks, but by the sounds of coach Carlyle's comments, it could be even longer than that.
Booth's (foot) timeline for return is looking closer to six week prognosis, perhaps longer.
Booth was originally expected to miss a minimum of four weeks with a fractured foot, but now it is looking more like a minimum of six weeks. He is two weeks into the original timetable, so expect him to be out until at least the middle of November and perhaps beyond that.
Booth is out for a minimum of four weeks with a fractured foot.
Booth, 29, signed a one-year deal with the Maple Leafs this offseason. The oft-injured forward can not seem to catch a break. He has missed a total if 78 games in the last three seasons and will miss at least one month to start this year. His spot may be filled by Josh Leivo who has had a strong preseason.
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.
