David Booth has looked good during Detroit Red Wings training camp, per the Detroit Free Press' Helene St. James.

Booth is attending camp on a professional tryout, so there's no guarantee that he'll be on the team next week. St. James said Booth has shown "good hustle" and he's also been a big help on the penalty kill. Assuming the Red Wings want to keep him around, he'll likely have to play for under $1 million this season. Even if he does stick around, don't expect him to carry any fantasy value.

David Booth is excited to be attending the Red Wings' training camp.

The Red Wings signed Booth to a professional tryout earlier this month, so he's not guaranteed to be on the roster once the season begins. "It’s really exciting to be here," Booth said. "It’s very close to me in the sense that I grew up being a Red Wings fan having front-row season tickets, being there when they won the Cup. It’s been a childhood kind of pastime for me to watch these guys through all the good years and so to come here and throw a Red Wings jersey on for the first time, it’s really special." He had eight points in 19 games in the KHL last season.

Unfortunately for Booth, it was a rough game for the Ducks as they lost 6-1. Booth logged 13:36 minutes and registered three shots along with a minus-one rating. He's trying to make the team after agreeing to a PTO. "It’s different," Booth said. "You’re at a different stage now and you have to approach it differently. I think nowadays you come into camp and guys are in shape and ready to play. So you have to be right there with everyone. It’s just a matter of getting that timing back." Booth failed to earn a spot with the Florida Panthers last season and instead went to the KHL where he recorded six goals and 16 points in 23 games.
