David Booth went unclaimed on waivers.
With that done, the Vancouver Canucks will now buy out the final season of Booth's contract. Booth wasn't able to establish himself as a top-six forward with Vancouver and the fact that he dealt with injuries didn't help. If he can find a team that will give him an opportunity on one of their top two lines, then he might bounce back in 2014-15. If nothing else, he's worth keeping an eye on to see where he ends up.

The Vancouver Canucks have placed David Booth on unconditional waivers.

If Booth successfully clears waivers, then Vancouver will buy out the last season of his contract. That will clear up $4.25 million in cap space. Booth had just 19 points in 66 games in 2013-14, but a change of scenery might do him some good as he never seemed to mesh well with the Canucks.

David Booth's agent, Mike Liut, doesn't know what the Canucks intend to do with his client as the NHL buyout window begins.

"I called Jim (Canucks GM Benning) a couple of weeks ago and spoke with him about David then," said Liut. "That was before the club’s meetings and he was still getting up to speed on things. I asked him to give me a heads-up if they came to a decision." Booth entered the off-season as a likely candidate to be bought out, but for the time being he's still with Vancouver.

David Booth found the back of the net in Vancouver's 4-2 loss on Thursday.

Booth has just nine goals and 18 points in 64 games this season. It wouldn't be shocking if Vancouver opted to buy out the final season of his contract.

David Booth sniped two goals to lead the Canucks' 5-2 rout over the Wild on Wednesday night.

Booth had been mired in a goal slump of epic proportions, not scoring since Dec. 17, 2013, but now he has three goals in his last two games. A threat earlier in his career for 20-plus goals, it's been another disappointing season for the 29-year-old who has eight markers and 16 points this season. Zack Kassian, Daniel Sedin and Ryan Kesler picked up the other goals in the win.

David Booth has been ice cold for a long time.

He hasn't scored a goal in his last 24 games and he hasn't recorded a point in his past 10 contests. Booth has a mere five goals and 12 points in 48 matches this campaign.
Mar 6 - 6:44 PM

David Booth has had an eventful 10-day Olympic break.

He got engaged, bagged an alligator in a quick Florida bow hunt and has done extra skating with a local coach. "It was actually really cool," said Booth of the two-metre long alligator. "It was actually a one-time thing. I don't think I'm going to become a gator hunter. There's not too many things open in February, so I had to go to Orlando for a couple of days and it was successful." Booth is hoping for success on the ice now, with the NHL scheduled set to resume. He has just five goals and 12 points in 44 games this season.

David Booth was a healthy scratch for the 12th time this season on Sunday.

Booth has not had a good time of it in Vancouver as he has struggled for a couple of seasons. He has only five goals and 11 points in 37 games and is not worth a pickup in fantasy pools.

David Booth is fine to play Saturday.

He was injured late in Thursday's game against Phoenix. Booth has 11 points in 34 games this season.
Jan 18 - 3:56 PM

David Booth will be back in the Canucks' lineup on Wednesday.

Booth has been kept out of three straight games and it's not clear how much of that was just him being a healthy scratch or if he was actually unavailable due to an undisclosed injury. Either way, Booth is having a disappointing campaign and this is another opportunity for him to turn that around. "I hope he sees how some of the guys played last night," Canucks coach John Tortorella said on Tuesday, referring to Vancouver's gritty performance in its 1-0 loss to Los Angeles. "That's the way I want to see him play because we have another guy coming from the minors, so if he doesn't do it or other guys don't do it, I'll put another guy in."

It turns out that our speculation that David Booth was injured is correct.

Coach John Tortorella said on Sunday that Booth missed the skills competition because he was 'banged up'. Booth participated in practice Sunday but whether or not he plays Monday will likely be a game-time decision. Booth was a so-called healthy scratch the last two games. He has five goals and 10 points in 32 games with a plus-four rating. He has little fantasy value.
Jan 13 - 9:17 AM

David Booth did not participate in the Vancouver Canucks skills competition on Saturday.

Booth has missed the last two games and was thought to be a healthy scratch but with his lack of participation in the skills event, you have to wonder if he is hurt. Jason Garrison won the fastest shot competition at 105.1 MPH while Dale Weise was once again the fastest skater.
Jan 12 - 10:25 AM

David Booth registered an assist in Vancouver's 2-1 win on Sunday.

Booth has struggled this season, but he now has two goals and four points in his last six games. Given that his tenure with Vancouver has been mostly a disappointment, we would caution against getting too excited over his recent hot streak.

David Booth will take a three-game point streak into Thursday night's meeting versus Dallas.

He has recorded a goal in two straight matches and he added an assist the game before that. Booth has only nine points in 24 games this year, but his recent progress offensively is encouraging.
Thu, Dec 19, 2013 05:49:00 PM

David Booth broke a six game goal scoring slump with his fourth goal of the season Saturday.

Booth was playing in his 400th NHL game and he now has eight points and a plus-five rating in 23 games this season. He is not worth owning at this time.
