Blues invite veteran defenceman Colin White to training camp

ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Blues addressed depth on defence, signing veteran defenceman Colin White to a tryout contract for training camp.

The 35-year-old White is a 12-year veteran and played in 54 games for the San Jose Sharks last season. He had one goal and three assists.

White was on the ice for a scrimmage Tuesday night after signing earlier in the day and coach Ken Hitchcock said White did not hurt his chances of making the team.

White has played in 797 career games and 114 playoff games. He was a second-round draft pick of the Devils in 1996.

Quote of the Day

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
