MONTREAL -- The Montreal Canadiens announced Thursday that centreman Ryan White
has been called up from the AHL Hamilton Bulldogs. White will join the Canadiens in Montreal, for tonight’s game against the New York Islanders, at the Bell Centre.
The 22 year old, 6’00’’, 198 lbs centreman suited up for three Canadiens’ games this season following his first recall on January 20. White was held pointless, recording one shot on goal and five penalty minutes, while maintaining a +1 plus/minus differential and averaging 7:35 minutes of ice time per game.
White totals 12 points (3 goals, 9 assists) in 33 games this season with the Bulldogs. One of his goals has been tallied on the power play. He has collected 61 shots on goal and served 77 penalty minutes. White missed 14 games earlier this season due to a lower-body injury incurred on November 19 at Rochester.
A native of Brandon, Manitoba, White was the Canadiens’ fourth pick (third round, 66th overall) in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. SEE ALSO:Old-time hockey The Price-Thomas fightHabs drop wild one The new and used skates drive
