Prospect with solid two-way potential. Developing well, but still needs to progress in both ends to be considered a likely candidate for NHL play.

March 2020 – More was expected out of White this year and for the most part, he did not deliver. Everything in his game dropped and as a result, he took on a more defensive role. The results were 12 points in 45 games and just one goal. Maybe it was a bump in the road but maybe this was not. Chris Wassel
April 2019 – White added five more points in ten games while enjoying a slightly more expanded role due to injuries. Again, he did not look out of place despite the extra ice time. Chris Wassel
March 2019 – Give the defenseman a lot of credit. White has matured a good bit in the last 18 months. Despite that, he has a long way to develop. White managed 25 points in 61 games for Binghamton and even has seen a few games for New Jersey this year. His two-way play greatly improved from last season. The 21-year-old shows a good deal more poise and does not panic as much in high-pressure situations. He stands a decent chance of cracking the New Jersey roster next season. Chris Wassel
September 2017- White has suffered a broken wrist after blocking a shot in an exhibition game and will be sidelined for the next six-to-eight weeks. It’s a huge blow for the youngster who had designs on a roster spot. Slated to return mid-November White likely figures to spend some time in the AHL to get back up to speed before seeing NHL duty. Brad Phillips April 2017 – New Jersey rewarded White for a solid OHL campaign, his fourth in Sault Ste. Marie, with a spot on the A-Devils’ playoff squad. The steadily-developing rearguard finished the year with six goals and 25 assists and a plus-24 in 64 games, adding three postseason assists. Overall, White racked up 21 goals and 72 assists in 256 career OHL games with a plus-66. He joins fellow Greyhound Blake Speers who was also promoted for Albany’s playoff run. Kevin Wickersham March 2017 – With the regular season nearing its close, White continues to impress as a puck distributor and secondary power play component for the OHL Western Division champs. In addition to his 24 assists, third among Greyhound defensemen, White’s +24 plus/minus is second among squad defensemen, and his 112 shot total is the highest of his career. Wrapping up his fourth year with Sault Ste. Marie, White may benefit from the recent Reese Scarlett and Brandon Gormley deals to land an important role next season in the Devils’ defensive pipeline. Kevin Wickersham January 2017 – Signed by the Devils to a three-year entry-level contract this past summer, White is an effective, smooth skating defenseman with impressive passing skills. Not a true bruiser, he strategically positions himself on the ice and uses his stick well to deter opponents. His offensive skills have improved over the past two seasons (this is his fourth with the OHL’s Sault Ste. Marie – second as an alternate captain) along with his abilities at the point. In 2015-16 he led the Greyhounds in goals and power-play goals by defensemen, with nine and four respectively. With further development of his shot, in time one can envision him as an effective power play quarterback. Currently third on the Greyhounds in several categories including PIM with 33, plus/minus rating at +16, and shots by defensemen at 71, he has assumed an increased role on the Soo blue line and should continue to develop favorably in all facets of the game with experience.
