Transaction: Ryan White Loaned to Phantoms

Lehigh Valley Kicks Off 5-Game Road Trip This Wednesday in Binghamton

December 28, 2014

Lehigh Valley, PA – The Philadelphia Flyers, parent club of the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, have loaned forward Ryan White to the Phantoms on a conditioning loan. White signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Flyers last August and has been working his way back from injury. A 26-year-old center from Brandon, Manitoba, he spent last season with the Montreal Canadiens where he registered two goals, four assists and 50 penalty minutes in 52 games.

A third-round selection (66th overall) by Montreal in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, White is in the midst of his seventh professional season and has amassed five goals, 12 assists, 17 points and 232 penalty minutes in 141 career NHL games with the Canadiens. Meanwhile, in 179 career AHL outings with the Hamilton Bulldogs, the 6’0″, 200-pivot has recorded 35 goals, 45 assists, 80 points and 344 penalty minutes.

Lehigh Valley returns to action this Wednesday when the Phantoms head to Binghamton for a New Year’s Eve showdown with the Senators. Wednesday’s tilt kicks off a five-game road trip for Lehigh Valley which continues with weekend series in Norfolk and St. John’s over the next two weeks.
