Red Wings' David Booth: Pending unrestricted free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Booth recorded five points through 28 games in the 2017-18 campaign.

Nevermind the scant output, as it was surprising that Booth even made the team out of training camp and stuck around for the regular-season finale. However, he'll be an unrestricted free agent this summer, and Booth didn't find any suitors after getting waived in November, so he'll be hard-pressed to find work with any other club. The winger ultimately signing a professional tryout agreement -- as he did with the Red Wings ahead of this season -- can't be ruled out, though.

Red Wings' David Booth: Back on NHL roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Booth was called up to Detroit on Friday.

Since Booth has plateaued at the NHL level, he'll trade places with Dominic Turgeon, who's a rookie in need of all the experience he can get. Neither player possesses value in the fantasy arena since they're fourth-line contributors when performing on the big stage.

Red Wings' David Booth: Reassigned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Booth was sent down to AHL Grand Rapids on Wednesday.

Booth's demotion seemed to be only a matter of time after the Red Wings placed him on waivers. The veteran at least made the decision difficult for team brass, after he registered a goal against the Devils on Monday. The Michigan native should remain atop the list of potential call-ups, so fantasy owners shouldn't be surprised to see him back in the NHL soon.

Red Wings' David Booth: Responds to waiver move with goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Booth potted his fourth goal of the season in Monday's 3-0 road win over the Devils.

Booth was waived earlier in the day, but the Red Wings opted to leave him active in New Jersey. This turned out to be a wise move, as his second-period blast from the point doubled the lead for the visitors. The Michigan native has now been waived three times this season, but we've yet to see him actually play for AHL Grand Rapids.

Red Wings' David Booth: Placed on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Booth was designated for waivers Monday, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

Considering Booth has frequently served as a healthy scratch, it shouldn't come as a surprise to see him land on the waiver wire. The Red Wings could move the winger down to the minors as soon as he clears, and this could also be an indication that Justin Abdelkader (lower body) is ready to play against the Devils on Monday.

Red Wings' David Booth: Performing as expected for fourth-liner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Booth has four points (three goals, one assist) through 17 games this season.

We were shocked to see Booth earn an NHL contract after signing a PTO with the Red Wings in time for training camp. After all, he'd spent the prior two seasons in the KHL with ho-hum results -- 10 goals and 14 assists over 42 games between Vladivostok Admiral and Omsk Avangard, respectively. Lower-body injuries to Darren Helm and Justin Abdelkader should keep Booth away from the press box, but he's firmly entrenched in a bottom-six role and not worth owning in any fantasy setup.

Red Wings' David Booth: Watching from press box Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Wings' David Booth: Sitting out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Wings' David Booth: Questionable for Saturday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Wings' David Booth: Rare two-goal game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Wings' David Booth: Designated for waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Wings' David Booth: Scarce playing time of late
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Booth has watched the past four games from the press box.

From a fantasy perspective, it's usually not a good idea to put too much stock in a guy that initially latches on with a club via a professional tryout contract, and Booth is no exception. The Michigan native's chances to consistently hold down a fourth-line role were crushed with the arrival of Scott Wilson in the Riley Sheahan swap with Pittsburgh. It's best to leave Booth toiling on the virtual waiver wire.

Red Wings' David Booth: On waiver wire
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Booth has to clear waivers before he officially joins the Red Wings, Rick Ralph of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports.

Per NHL rules, after signing his two-way deal Monday, Booth needs to pass through waivers. Assuming he goes unclaimed, the winger is expected to suit up against the Wild on Thursday in a fourth-line role.

Red Wings' David Booth: Inks two-way contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Booth signed a two-way contract with the Red Wings on Monday, Craig Custance of The Athletic Detroit reports. The deal pays $700,000 at the NHL level and $250,000 at the AHL level.

Booth had been attending Red Wings training camp on a professional tryout agreement and impressed the team enough to garner a contract offer. A veteran of 502 NHL games, the 32-year-old Booth will presumably vie for a role on the Red Wings' fourth line following two seasons in the KHL.

Red Wings' David Booth: Garners PTO with Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

David Booth: Inks deal with Russian club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

David Booth: Released by Ducks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Ducks' David Booth: Inks professional tryout agreement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

September 30, 2015 01:20 PM
Released from PTO
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Booth was released from his professional tryout offer by the Panthers on Wednesday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.Booth had a solid year with the Maple Leafs last season, scoring seven goals and six assists in 59 games. He hasn't broken the 30-point threshold since 2010-11 when he was on the Panthers. Booth may latch on with another team or this could be the end of the line for the 30-year-old.

Booth scored twice Friday in a 6-3 loss to the Flames.That's five goals in the last five games for Booth, who has been throwing a ton of rubber on net of late (18 SOG over those five games). It's hard to believe that he only had a single goal in the previous 41 (!) games, but such is life. He's clearly a bright spot on the gloomy Leafs right now and could be worth a look if you're desperate for offensive help in a deeper league.
