Red Wings place David Booth on waivers

NHL: Pittsburgh Penguins at Detroit Red Wings Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic announced Monday that the Red Wings have placed veteran David Booth on waivers.

Booth has had a bit of a redemption trip here in Detroit, after spending time away from the NHL. He’s been a serviceable bottom-six player, with three goals and an assist in 17 games.

If Booth isn’t claimed by another team, there’s a good chance he ends up here in Detroit at some point before the season ends. But with a cap-hit of $700k, he could be a viable option for a team looking for depth. We’ll know what’s to come for Booth by noon Tuesday.
