Booth clears waivers, contract to be bought out by Canucks
Forward David Booth cleared waivers Wednesday, paving the way for the Vancouver Canucks to use a buyout on the one-year, $4.25-million cap hit left on his contract.
The 29-year-old scored scored 26 goals with 25 assists in 134 games with the Canucks after being acquired - along with forward Steve Reinprecht and a 2013 third-round draft pick - from the Florida Panthers in exchange for forwards Mikael Samuelsson and Marco Sturm in October of 2011.
Here's a look at Booth's production value during his time with the team.
Once the move is complete, Booth can begin talking to potential suitors around the league on June 25 and will be free to sign a new deal on July 1.
