David Booth tallied a goal in Vancouver's 5-2 loss to the Rangers on Saturday afternoon.
He had a goal and an assist on Thursday, so this could be the start of a mini point spree for the oft-injured winger. Booth has registered just six points in 16 games this season, but he has been better since returning from the press box. We recommend taking a wait-and-see approach with him. Daniel Sedin had Vancouver's other goal in the defeat.

David Booth had a goal and an assist in Vancouver's 5-2 victory on Thursday.
It was a rare offensive outburst for Booth, who has fallen out of favor in Vancouver. He's averaging just 13:14 minutes per contest and that's when he plays at all. He's worth keeping an eye on because he does have top-six potential, but we can't recommend owning him in standard leagues yet.

David Booth will return from his exodus to the press box on Monday night.
He has been a healthy scratch for the last three games. In 13 games this year, Booth has one goal and two assists. He is eager to do "something" to get back into coach John Tortorella's good graces.

David Booth doesn't feel he has the same jump that used to have, but he is confident that he can get it back.
"My explosiveness isn't where it was in the past," said Booth. "That extra step, that's really the strength in my game. Without a doubt I can get it back. I've had other leg injuries and it comes back with time. It's just been a little bit longer this time than in the past." Booth was a healthy scratch on Tuesday for the second time this year and he's appeared in just 13 games, mostly due to injury, where he's posted only three points.

David Booth (lower body) played in his first game with Vancouver on Thursday since the completion of his AHL conditioning stint.
Booth was limited to just 12:04 minutes of ice time. He would have some fantasy value if the Canucks' were giving him a decent amount of playing time, but there's nothing to suggest that will happen.

David Booth enjoyed his AHL conditioning stint.
Booth recorded an assist in three games with the AHL Utica Comets after missing some time with a lower-body injury. "It was fun playing a lot," Booth said. "You are just in the game, you don't really think the game, you just go out and play and that is something I haven't done in a long time. It was a lot of fun playing those minutes and being with the guys having their first win. I think there was nothing but positives." By contrast, Booth is averaging just 13:11 minutes per game with Vancouver this season. That lack of playing time has effectively killed his fantasy value in standard leagues.

David Booth (lower body) has return from his conditioning assignment.
Booth picked up an assist in three games with the AHL Utica Comets. There was a time when Booth was regarded as a solid top-six forward, but we wouldn't count on him having any fantasy value in standard leagues this season.

David Booth might have been caught off guard by Vancouver's decision to send him to the AHL on a conditioning assignment.
Booth stated hours before being assigned that returning during Vancouver's current road trip would be a "reasonable goal." The trip ends on Nov. 10, so that almost certainly won't happen now. His playing time has been limited ever since he joined Vancouver during the 2011-12 campaign.
