Booth (undisclosed) is listed as a healthy scratch for Wednesday's home game against the Bruins, NHL.com reports. This move doesn't make a ton of sense given that the Red Wings have reassigned Tyler Bertuzzi to AHL Grand Rapids, but there's a chance that forward/defenseman Luke Witkowski will line up on the left wing versus the B's. Booth sank three goals in four games prior to his injury, though his playing time has been scarce and he remains waiver fodder in most leagues.
Booth (undisclosed) is listed as an injured scratch for Saturday's matinee against the Blues, per NHL.com. Booth had three goals in four games before sustaining his injury, but he won't be available Saturday. He remains day-to-day ahead of Monday's home contest against the Panthers.
Booth (undisclosed) is considered questionable for Saturday's game against the Blues, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. Booth has only averaged 6:39 of ice time in nine games with the Red Wings this season, so fantasy owners shouldn't need to concern themselves with his availability for Saturday's tilt. His status for Detroit's matchup with St. Louis should be confirmed prior to puck drop Saturday afternoon.
Booth scored twice Saturday in a 4-3 loss to the Devils. His ice time has been sorely limited and he was even waived at the start of November. But Booth's resilience and patience were rewarded Saturday. His value is minimal given his injury history and his lack of ice time.
Booth was waived by the Red Wings on Wednesday, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports. He watched the past five games from the press box, and the arrival of Scott Wilson via a trade with Pittsburgh has rendered Booth expendable. The Michigan native used to be a proficient scorer -- a 60-point campaign with the Panthers in 2008-09 especially stands out -- but unfortunately his comeback bid hasn't yielded favorable results with past concussions playing a significant role in his tailspin to irrelevancy in the fantasy realm.
