Booth suffered a fractured nose on Wednesday; game-time decision for Thursday.

Booth is still being monitored by the Maple Leafs medical staff, but he has not been diagnosed with a concussion at this time, which is good news considering his history of concussion problems. If all he has is a fractured nose, then there is a chance he could throw on a face shield and be in the lineup tonight vs. the Sharks.

Booth left Wednesday’s game with a head injury and did not return.

Booth went in to hit Sami Vatanen, who got his elbow up and caught Booth in the head. Booth went down and was woozy heading back to the bench. He has a history of concussion problems, so their is obviously a huge concern for the 30-year-old forward. Booth won’t play on Thursday, Matt Frattin has been recalled.

Booth (foot) is skating for the first time since fracturing his foot in late September.

Booth has not made his Maple Leafs debut yet and he is behind schedule in his return, but getting on the ice is finally a step in the right direction. He is six weeks removed from the fractured foot, but is probably still two weeks away from playing.

Booth (foot) is "a long ways away" said coach Carlyle on Thursday.

Booth took a spin on the ice this morning for the first time since he fractured his foot in late September. His original timetable was four weeks and he is already past that mark.
