The Toronto Maple Leafs announced on Friday that forward David Booth has been loaned to the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League for conditioning purposes.
Booth, 29, has yet to play a regular season game with the Maple Leafs so far this season. The Michigan native suffered a broken foot after blocking a shot during a pre-season game against the Buffalo Sabres on September 28. Booth has registered 218 points (113 goals, 105 assists) in 443 NHL regular season games.
Booth is expected to join the Marlies for their 7:30 p.m. game tonight in Hamilton against the Bulldogs. The Marlies and Bulldogs will complete the second half of a home-and-home series on Sunday at 3 p.m. at Ricoh Coliseum. The Maple Leafs return to the ice on Saturday night when they play host to the Detroit Red Wings.
