Just when it seemed like David Booth finally was getting his 2013 season on track, it appears that he went down with another injury.

The Vancouver Canucks announced that he suffered a lower-body injury on Saturday and won’t return. Meanwhile, the Vancouver Province’s Ben Kuzma gets more specific, claiming it’s an ankle issue.

Either way, it’s a troubling situation, although an ankle injury could be especially troubling if it happens to be a high-ankle sprain.

Booth, 28, has been limited to one goal and two assists for three points in just 11 games played this season (plus tonight), although the silver lining was that two of those points came in the last three contests.

    Sources close to the team are hinting Booth may actually have hurt himself scrambling out of the Millionaires throwback jersey when getting ready for the photo op…?

    A bit too glib earlier I’m afraid…saw replay on pvr? Looks like a nasty injury for Booth…broken ankle or leg when fallen on. This guy has no luck to speak of…get well dude.

      Perhaps, but I was wondering the same thing…I really don’t believe this site can be so unprofessional as to post a photo from ANOTHER time that he was injured. I mean, how unprofessional can you get, really?

    There are several water buffalo, a herd of gazelle and a Vancouver City Limits sign feeling a whole lot better all the same…
