Reports: David Booth gets PTO shot with Red Wings
Apparently the PTO wave also includes David Booth.
One interesting detail from St. James: Booth, a Detroit native, made the tryout request to the Red Wings.
Booth, 32, last suited up in the NHL in 2014-15, scoring seven goals and 13 points in 59 regular-season games with the Toronto Maple Leafs. He’s spent the last two seasons in the KHL, including 2016-17 with Omsk Avangard.
Playing for his local team would be nifty, but to some extent, the Red Wings seem like an odd fit. For one thing, they have to figure things out with Andreas Athanasiou and even now don’t have a ton of cash to work with.
(Not that Booth would fetch much.)
