There was concern Booth might miss the start of the season after only playing 12 games last year before ankle surgery, being held out of the start of training camp, and pulling out of a game last weekend after tweaking his groin in the morning skate. But coach John Tortorella surprised everyone by announcing the oft-injured winger is ready to play.

"David Booth as far as I am concerned is playing tonight, unless someone tells me something different," Tortorella said when asked if Booth had resumed skating.

Versteeg set to make preseason debut Thursday

Florida Panthers forward Kris Versteeg has been medically cleared to return to game action for the first time since tearing his ACL in March.

He rehabbed extensively during the summer.

"I've talked to a lot of guys who have had it done like [Tomas] Kopecky and [Scottie] Upshall, you just trust their opinion, more so you got to trust your doctor, trust your surgeon what he did to you is going to make you better first, and understand that and go through your physical therapy," Versteeg told the Florida Sun-Sentinel. "The staff here in Florida did a tremendous job with me the first two months, then I went home [to Lethrbridge, Alberta] and worked with a guy named Tim back home and my own trainer and they got me to where I am today."
