Flyers' White sidelined after pectoralis muscle injury
Philadelphia Flyers center Ryan White is out indefinitely after surgery to repair his left pectoralis muscle

Philadelphia Flyers center Ryan White had surgery Wednesday to repair his left pectoralis muscle, the team announced Thursday.

According to a statement from Flyers general manager Ron Hextall, the injury occurred last week during an off-ice workout. There is no timetable for White's return.

White signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Flyers on Aug. 7. The 26-year-old had two goals and six points in 52 games with the Montreal Canadiens last season.

In 141 NHL games, all with the Canadiens, White has five goals and 17 points.

Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
