Canucks lose Booth for 4-6 weeks with injury

Vancouver Canucks forward David Booth will be out 4-6 weeks, the team announced Tuesday via its official Twitter feed.

Booth suffered a groin injury Sunday during the off-ice testing phase of training camp, coach Alain Vigneault told the team's website. Booth underwent an MRI exam Monday that revealed the damage.

"He just pulled his groin," Vigneault told the Vancouver Sun. "Stuff happens, whether it be in testing or practice."

Booth scored 16 goals and added 13 assists in 56 games for the Canucks last season after being acquired from the Florida Panthers. A second-round pick by Florida in the 2004 NHL Draft, the 6-foot, 212-pounder has career totals of 103 goals and 196 points in 365 games.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
