David Jonathan Booth (born November 24, 1984) is an American professional ice hockey player currently playing for the Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League (NHL). Following his second year with the Michigan State Spartans, he was selected 53rd overall by the Florida Panthers in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. He spent four years playing college hockey before turning professional with the Panthers organization in 2006–07. After recording career-highs in goals, assists and points, as well as being voted the Panthers' most valuable player by the team's fans in 2008–09, he suffered two concussions the following season. Midway through his sixth year in the league, Booth was traded to the Canucks in a four-player deal.

Famous quotes containing the words booth and/or david:

    A man’s labour is not only his capital but his life. When it passes it returns never more. To utilise it, to prevent its wasteful squandering, to enable the poor man to bank it up for use hereafter, this surely is one of the most urgent tasks before civilisation.
    —William Booth (1829–1912)

    Its virtues, not its sins, are as scarlet.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
