Booth will sign a professional tryout agreement with the Red Wings, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports. Having spent the past two seasons in Russia's KHL, Booth -- a Detroit native -- returns home for a shot with the Original Six franchise. The 32-year-old has 502 NHL games under his belt, but he battled through recurring concussion injuries that threatened his career before managing to play in all 82 games for the Panthers in 2010-11. Even if Booth impresses the coaching staff and cracks the Opening Night roster, he shouldn't expect much in the way of compensation, considering the Wings' major salary-cap issues.
Booth signed with Admiral Vladivostok of the KHL in Russia on Thursday, TSN reports. Booth joined the Ducks on a professional tryout agreement in October, when the training camp rosters were thin due to the World Cup of Hockey, but he was ultimately released. The Michigan native compiled 231 points (120 goals, 111 assists) in 502 career games between the Panthers, Canucks and Maple Leafs, respectively.
Booth was released by the Ducks on Monday, Dhiren Mahiban of the New York Times reports. Booth joined the Ducks on a professional tryout agreement, but was unable to make much of an impact and has now been let go. He could resurface elsewhere in the league prior to the start of the regular season, although it wouldn't be surprising if he ultimately ended up in the KHL, where he spent the majority of his 2015-16 campaign with the Vladivostok Admiral.
Booth signed a professional tryout agreement with the Ducks on Tuesday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports. Booth failed to secure a permanent contract after trying out with the Panthers last season and ultimately ended up in the KHL. Anaheim currently lacks depth on the left side, which likely pits the 31-year-old up against fellow PTO signee Sean Bergenheim for a roster spot.
David Booth was released from his professional tryout offer by the Panthers on Wednesday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
