SUNRISE, Fla. - Florida Panthers left-winger David Booth has returned from a concussion that had left him sidelined since October.

Booth was included in Florida's lineup for the first time since suffering the concussion during a game against Philadelphia on Oct. 24. He was carted off the ice on a stretcher after a hard hit by Flyers captain Mike Richards.

The 25-year-old forward missed 45 games because of the injury, which might have also cost him a spot on the U.S. Olympic team.

Booth had a career-high 31 goals and 29 assists during Florida's 2008-09 campaign. He had two goals and an assist in the nine games he played before his injury this season.

The Panthers faced the New York Islanders on Sunday.
