White had a chance to earn a fourth-line job with the team this season in camp, and he was actually quite well-liked by Canadiens fans last season. He can play strong defensive minutes and will get under the skin of opponents, and Andrew Berkshire of Habs Eyes On The Prize told us last month that White has the ability to be a "penalty drawing machine." Keep in mind that doesn't necessarily equate to "discipline": he has 232 penalty minutes in 141 career NHL games.
With this injury, it seems like White's only real potential to make the Flyers this season will be as a call up. He last played in the AHL in 2011-12 with the Hamilton Bulldogs.
