Canucks' Booth out for rest of season

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Vancouver Canucks winger David Booth had surgery Friday and will miss the rest of the regular season.
Booth suffered a leg injury last Saturday against Detroit and missed the past three games against Minnesota, St. Louis and Phoenix.
Canucks general manager Mike Gillis told a Vancouver radio station ``there's a chance'' Booth could return for the playoffs.
``Hopefully, (the surgery) will accelerate the process some measure and then he'll have to wait and rehab like anyone else,'' Gillis told Team 1040.
The team has not provided details on the exact nature of Booth's injury. Canucks officials could not be reached for comment on Booth's procedure Friday.
The setback continues a tough season for Booth. The 28-year-old Detroit native suffered a groin injury on the first day of training camp and missed the first 14 games of the regular season. He also sat out one more game in Detroit.
