Booth’s most recent stint saw him get the start in three of Reading’s last four games and go 2-1-0, including a shutout in his most recent appearance. In fact, Booth turned aside 49 of 50 shots over consecutive wins against Manchester and Norfolk. This season with the Royals Booth is 9-6-1 with a 2.51 goals-against average and a .909 save percentage.

The 21-year-old now returns to Charlotte where he is 4-1-0 with a 2.53 goals-against average and an .898 save percentage. After allowing just one goal on 29 shots in a win over Utica on Dec. 16, Booth has appeared in just two games for the Checkers since then.

The Checkers are in Hershey for a pair of games Saturday and Sunday, the first leg of a five-game road trip.
