David Booth has been placed on waivers

The Detroit Red Wings have placed veteran forward David Booth on waivers. The local Michigan product was a nice comeback story as he cracked the Wings’ roster out of camp despite not having played an NHL game since 2014-15.

It seems like that Booth will clear waivers considering the fact nobody was interested in him during the off-season. If he does clear, since his salary is just $700k, he won’t count against the cap as a buried cap hit in the minors.

At this point, the Wings haven’t announced a corresponding roster move, but waiving Booth puts them at 12 forwards, eight defencemen, and two goalies, one player shy of the 23-man roster maximum.
