|Career Potential:||Rambunctious energy depth forward, when healthy.|

ImpactHe will likely be a healthy scratch after taking a number of foolish penalties. White plays on the edge and is a great source for penalty minutes when he plays.

Bad, because he is less likely to be a valuable source for PIMs.

NewsRyan White's double minor in the second period resulted in Ottawa scoring a pair of power-play goals to blow the game wide open.
ImpactHe was given a minor for roughing and another two minutes for unsportsmanlike conduct. "I was complaining," said White. "I thought he was holding my stick along the boards, but I have to learn to shut up and just go to the box." The two goals the Senators scored gave them a 3-1 lead en route to a 5-1 victory.
