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

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
