Canucks Booth (Ankle) Hopes To Be Ready For The Regular Season
David Booths rehab from an ankle injury has been a tough and frustrating one, but the 28-year-old Canucks winger took a step forward this afternoon in Vancouver when he practiced with teammates (he skated with Ryan Kesler and Alex Burrows) for the first time this preseason.
It was quite the feeling, said Booth, per the Vancouver Suns Elliott Pap. I mean, its been a while since I skated with them.
If, however, Booths absence extends beyond the start of the regular season (Oct. 3, for Vancouver), the Canucks have a couple of kids who could possibly see time on the second line until he gets back. Hunter Shinkaruk is one candidate, as is Nicklas Jensen.
