The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that they have signed forward Ryan White to a one-year contract extension, according to general manager Ron Hextall.
White, 27, established new career-highs in goals (6), assists (6) and points (12) despite playing a limited amount of games (34) due to injury this past season, his first with the Flyers.
The 6-0, 183-lb forward missed the first three months of the season while recovering from an injury sustained to his left pectoralis muscle during an off-season workout, which required surgery. He was assigned to and spent 11 games with the club’s AHL affiliate in Lehigh Valley in December and January before being recalled to the Flyers on a full-time basis.
White originally signed with the Flyers as a free agent on August 7, 2014. In parts of six seasons in the NHL, he has recorded 11 goals, 18 assists for 29 points and 262 penalty minutes in 175 regular season games.
He was drafted by the Montreal Canadiens in the third round (66th overall) in the 2006 NHL Draft.
Following the 2014-15 season, White sat down to go 1-on-1 with Steve Coates... WATCH IT HERE
