Observations

May 2019 – Booth started 30 games during the 2018-19 season, with 10 coming at the AHL level and the other 20 split between two organizations at the ECHL level. He posted solid numbers across the board in the regular season, but his best hockey has come during the Florida Everblades road to the Kelly Cup semifinals, where he appeared in 12 games, finishing with a 2.17 goals against average and a .925 save percentage. Booth should battle Jeremy Helvig next season to see who makes the jump to the AHL full-time.  Kevin LeBlanc

December 2017 – Following his four-year QMJHL run, including a league-best .911 save percentage last year between Quebec and Saint John, Booth is getting his professional feet wet in the ECHL as a Florida Everblade. He’s having some decent results too with a 2.33 goals-against average (sixth-best in the league) and .913 save precentage as the club has sped out to an 18-2-3 record. That tops the 27-team league. Kevin Wickersham

 

November 2016 – Booth has taken a big step forward this season, his third as the starter of the Quebec Remparts. The goaltender is on pace for career highs in wins and save percentage and a career goals against average. Currently, Booth has a 8-4 record on the season with a 2.60 GAA, and a .920% save percentage. 

He has been named to the QMJHL Team for the CHL’s Canada-Russia series. Kevin LeBlanc

 

June 2015 – The Carolina Hurricanes selected goaltender Callum Booth with the 95rd pick of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. Brendan Ross

 

June 2015 – Prototypical size for today’s netminder, Booth has strong legs and moves quickly from post to post. He uses his size well down low, taking away a lot of the net as he plays his angles pretty well when facing the shot. Can get caught on his knees and out of position at times and good shooters can pick corners as his reflexes only seem average at the moment. Does face question marks regarding mental toughness as he was unhappy when hearing that Zach Fucale was on the way to Quebec. Not always ready mentally in spot duty. His resume is does have key experience of note, as he represented Team Canada as backup at the U-18’s, and most recently as relief for Fucale and the Memorial Cup winning Quebec Remparts. Mike Barrett
