Canucks to Buyout Booth

Dec 19 2017, 10:57 am

Many Canucks fans will finally get their wish, David Booth is finally on his way out the door.

TSN’s Bob McKenzie made the big reveal on Twitter earlier this morning:

The NHL buyout window opened yesterday and teams have until June 30 to make buyouts. After buying out Keith Ballard last year, the Vancouver Canucks have one compliance buyout left.

A compliance buyout does not count against a team’s salary cap, a regular buyout does. After this season, teams will no longer be able to use compliance buyouts.
