Blues invite veteran D Colin White for tryout

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Blues addressed depth on defense, signing veteran defenseman 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

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
