David Booth is extremely excited about the one-year, $1.1 million contract he recently signed with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

"Just the opportunity to, I guess, revive my career a little bit," the veteran forward said. Booth was bought out by the Vancouver Canucks following his third disappointing season there.Unable to play a full season since 2010-11 with the Florida Panthers, Booth finished with 51 points (26 goals) in 134 games with Vancouver. "It's been a little bit tougher the past couple years, with some injuries, setbacks that I've had," he said. "I've stayed positive through them all. ... I thought I was playing some good hockey there toward the end of the year ... and I've had a great summer of training, been healthy, and really excited to get a start here in Toronto." Booth put up 31 goals and 29 assists (60 points) in 72 games for the Panthers in 2008-09, earning a lucrative six-year contract. He was traded to Vancouver on Oct. 22, 2011 and missed 78 games with knee, ankle and groin injuries. The 29-year-old finished last season with six points in his final 10 games.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed David Booth to a one-year, $1.1 million contract.

There was a time when Booth was a safe bet to score over 20 goals and 40 points per season. However, that's when he was logging 18-plus minutes per game in Florida, which ended with his acquisition by the Vancouver Canucks. Booth never fit in with Vancouver and his problems were amplified by a series of injuries. A fresh start is exactly what Booth needs, but he's far from a safe bet to capitalize on this opportunity.

Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff has gone on record saying he’d like to add another forward in the off-season.

Sources say he had been pursuing veteran Lee Stempniak, who has signed with the New York Rangers, according to reports. He may now be going after David Booth and/or Daniel Winnik, unrestricted free agents who could fit the Jets' bill on short-term contracts. Booth wasn't able to establish himself as a top-six forward with Vancouver and was placed on waivers after last season. Winnik had six goals and 24 assists with in 76 games for the Anaheim Ducks last season.

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.
