Booth scored twice Friday in a 6-3 loss to the Flames.

That's five goals in the last five games for Booth, who has been throwing a ton of rubber on net of late (18 SOG over those five games). It's hard to believe that he only had a single goal in the previous 41 (!) games, but such is life. He's clearly a bright spot on the gloomy Leafs right now and could be worth a look if you're desperate for offensive help in a deeper league.

Booth picked up an assist and added a game-high six shot attempts in Wednesday's shootout win over the Sabres.

Silver linings have been hard to find for the the Leafs in the second half, but count Booth's recent uptick in production as one of the them. The third-line winger is enjoying a five-game point streak, during which he's collected three goals and two assists while putting 20 shots on net. Those in deeper formats may want to consider investing.

Booth scored the Leafs' only goal in a 6-1 loss to the Blues on Saturday. It stretched his point streak to three games and three points, including two goals.

He has delivered 11 shots in those three games and is quietly provided value off the wire. He might be able to get you through an injury.

Booth notched his second goal of the season in Thursday's loss to Tampa Bay.

He now has a point in each of his last two games, but just seven (two goals, five assists) in 42 games this season. His scoring days are behind him, so that limits his fantasy value.

Booth was active in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Panthers, notching an assist and attempting five shots on goal.

The five shots were the second-highest total of the season for Booth, who typically doesn't see many favorable scoring opportunities in his bottom-six role. Unsurprisingly, his point totals (one goal, five assists in 41 games) remain rather depressed, a trend that should continue while he barely averages over 10 minutes of ice time per night, with none coming on the power play.

Booth (nose) will return to the lineup Saturday against the Blues, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.

Initially feared to have suffered a concussion after taking an elbow to the face Wednesday against the Ducks, Booth was fortunate to escape with merely a fractured nose. The injury ended up forcing him out of Thursday's game, but he was back on the ice for Saturday's morning skate wearing a full face shield and appears ready to play. The forward said he suffered no symptoms from the hit, with the only complications he experienced being watery eyes.

Booth (head) won't play Thursday against the Sharks, Mark Masters of TSN reports.

Booth suffered a fractured nose Wednesday, and may have undergone concussion tests, though that is a bit unclear. He will miss at least Thursday's game against the Sharks, making his next chance to return Saturday against the Blues. Matt Frattin will draw into the lineup Thursday in his place.

Booth suffered a fractured nose during Wednesday's game against the Ducks.

Previous reports suggested that Booth wouldn't play Thursday against the Sharks, but a final determination on that from has yet to be confirmed. Consider him day-do-day for now, a notion bolstered by the fact that Booth appears to have avoided a concussion here.

Booth exited Wednesday's game against the Kings in the third period after taking an inadvertent elbow to the head, the Associated Press reports.

Booth previously missed 54 games during the 2009-10 on account of a pair of concussions, so the Leafs' training staff will surely tread carefully here. Coach Peter Horachek provided no update on Booth after the game, but it wouldn't be a surprise if the team called up an extra forward to cover for his potential absence for Thursday's game against the Sharks.
