David Booth LW TOR 12 Hrs

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.

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.

Booth (lower body) has shed his walking boot, Sportsnet's David Alter reports.

Booth is still expected to miss a few more weeks because he has not skated in a while, but with him out of his boot, he can start doing more extensive rehab work. He was able to get some work in on the Maple Leafs' shooting practice machine Thursday.

Booth (lower body) will likely require a full six weeks to recover from injury, and perhaps even longer, TSN's Mark Masters reports.

The Leafs were optimistic that Booth would be back in as few as four weeks after suffering a broken foot Sept. 28, but his slow progress has prompted the Leafs to push that timetable back some more. Mid-November now looks like a more realistic return date for the winger, who probably isn't worth stashing until that time in most formats.

The Maple Leafs placed Booth on IR on Monday, James Mirtle of TSN reports.

Booth is expected to miss the next three weeks with a lower body injury, so the move to IR will free up a roster spot while still allowing Booth to return as soon as he's ready.

Booth will miss at least the next four weeks with a broken foot, David alter of Sportsnet reports.

Booth injured his foot Sunday, and will be sidelined for at least the next four weeks. It's tough news for the veteran winger, who was trying to secure a roster spot after posting nine goals and 10 assists in 66 games with the Canucks last season.

Booth (lower body) was seen on crutches after Sunday's game, according to a report on Toronto's Sportsnet 590TheFAN.

He's vying for a spot on the lower lines in Toronto, so this isn't great news. There's no word yet on the specifics of the injury.

David Booth is extremely excited about the one-year, $1.1 million contract he recently signed with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

"Just the opportunity to, I guess, revive my career a little bit," the veteran forward said. Booth was bought out by the Vancouver Canucks following his third disappointing season there.Unable to play a full season since 2010-11 with the Florida Panthers, Booth finished with 51 points (26 goals) in 134 games with Vancouver. "It's been a little bit tougher the past couple years, with some injuries, setbacks that I've had," he said. "I've stayed positive through them all. ... I thought I was playing some good hockey there toward the end of the year ... and I've had a great summer of training, been healthy, and really excited to get a start here in Toronto." Booth put up 31 goals and 29 assists (60 points) in 72 games for the Panthers in 2008-09, earning a lucrative six-year contract. He was traded to Vancouver on Oct. 22, 2011 and missed 78 games with knee, ankle and groin injuries. The 29-year-old finished last season with six points in his final 10 games.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed David Booth to a one-year, $1.1 million contract.

There was a time when Booth was a safe bet to score over 20 goals and 40 points per season. However, that's when he was logging 18-plus minutes per game in Florida, which ended with his acquisition by the Vancouver Canucks. Booth never fit in with Vancouver and his problems were amplified by a series of injuries. A fresh start is exactly what Booth needs, but he's far from a safe bet to capitalize on this opportunity.
