David Booth LW TOR 16 Mins
Booth (foot) has been activated from injured reserve in advance of Wednesday's game against the Penguins, James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail reports.
Booth will make his Leafs debut Wednesday after the broken foot cost him nearly eight weeks of action. He figures to slot in among the Leafs' bottom-six forwards this season, which won't allow him to gain much traction in fantasy circles.

Booth (foot) remains on track to return Wednesday against Pittsburgh, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.
He's progressed through the final days of a conditioning assignment with the Marlies, and the Leafs are simply off until Wednesday night. Booth will attempt to solidify a place on one of the two bottom lines upon returning.

Booth (foot) was sent to AHL Toronto for a conditioning assignment, James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail reports.
Booth was able to resume practicing Monday and appears fully recovered from his broken foot, but because he hasn't played in a game since Sept. 28, the organization wants him to test things out in the minors first. His assignment isn't expected to last beyond the weekend, perhaps allowing him to make his season debut for the Leafs on Wednesday in Pittsburgh.

Booth (foot) will not be activated from injured reserve for Thursday's game against the Lightning, David Alter of the Maple Leafs' website reports.
Booth skated Thursday and has practiced a few times this week, but with him coming off a foot injury, he still needs more time on the ice to get back into playing shape. Consider him a possibility for Toronto's next game Saturday.

Booth (foot) was a full participant in Monday's practice, Mark Masters of TSN reports.
Monday was the winger's first full practice with the Maple Leafs after breaking his foot in the preseason, but there's no word yet on his status for Tuesday's game against the Predators. There's a good chance he'll need to sit out a couple more games to work on his conditioning before actually suiting up.

Booth (foot) skated with the rest of his teammates at Tuesday's morning skate, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Booth still isn't practicing and might remain several days away from doing so, but the fact that he's back skating would seem to be encouraging. The forward has been out all season after fracturing his foot late in training camp.

Booth (broken foot) skated on his own prior to Tuesday's practice, Mark Masters of TSN reports.
It's believed to be the first time Booth has taken the ice since suffering the injury late in training camp. The Maple Leafs announced just a day earlier that Booth is considered week-to-week with the injury, so it still sounds like he's set to miss at least a handful of games before making his return.

Booth (foot) remains week-to-week, Jonas Siegel of TSN reports.
Booth was expected to miss four-to-six weeks after breaking his foot, and Monday marked the six week point. Apparently his recovery has leveled off recently, and the winger is still at least a week away from returning.

Though Booth (foot) skated Thursday morning, coach Randy Carlyle said the forward remains "a long ways from returning," Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Booth is about four weeks through the six-week recovery timetable he was given after suffering the injury in early October, but Carlyle's words suggest that Booth might not be a lock to return by mid-November. Until he starts taking part in full practices, the Leafs probably won't have a clear idea of when Booth might be activated.
David Booth LW TOR 1 Month
Booth (foot) says his recovery from the broken foot is "... slow. Too slow."
We don't know if this is just impatience or if things really are taking longer than normal with respect to others in the same situation. He continues to work out using the Leafs' shooting machine and his walking cast is off, but a return before mid-November really does seem out of reach.
