It is very possible Booth could simply be injured or dealing with the flu and it was decided it would best for him to stay away from the team. Chris Higgins missed last Sunday’s game against the Anaheim Ducks with the flu.
The Canucks play next on Monday against the Los Angeles Kings at the Staples Center. Puck drop is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
