The injury has led to concussion-like symptoms and White will return to Toronto where he will be examined by the Maple Leafs’ medical staff. His last appearance in the tournament came against Norway on May 3.

White recorded one goal (game-winning goal against Slovakia on April 28) and two assists while posting a plus 4 mark in five games for Canada at the tournament which is being held in Switzerland.
