Vancouver Canucks start 6 home game stand

The Vancouver Canucks begin a six-game home stand Thursday against the San Jose Sharks, after a largely unsuccessful four games away.

Left-wing David Booth also returns from a three-game conditioning stint in the minors, hoping his injury woes are behind him.

With a $4.25-million salary — and just two goals in his last 23 games — he has become the most overpaid player in the NHL.
