According to a report from the NHL Players' Association, the deal will see White make $2,999,995 this season.

White had 13 goals and 38 points last season, which he split between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Flames. Calgary acquired him in the Jan. 31 trade that sent Dion Phaneuf to the Leafs.

In 27 games with the Flames, White had 4 goals and 12 points.

In 323 NHL games with the Leafs and Flames, White has 32 goals and 117 points.
Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
