VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Canucks have lost winger David Booth for a month to six weeks.

Canucks coach Alain Vigneault said Booth, who has yet to take part in training camp, is out with a groin strain.

The coach revealed the injury Tuesday after Booth underwent an MRI a day earlier.

Booth's absence leaves two holes on Vancouver's second line. Centre Ryan Kesler is recuperating from off-season shoulder and wrist surgery and remains out indefinitely.

Mason Raymond, who missed much of last season while recuperating from a serious back injury, is the only second-line holdover participating in camp.

Booth, a 28-year-old Detroit native, recorded 16 goals and 13 assists in 56 games with Vancouver in 2011-12 after coming over in an early-season trade from Florida.

He also had one assist with the Panthers.
