Antero Nittymaki got hurt at the morning skate today leaving the Sharks without a backup goaltender for tonights game. So the call went out to UBC Head Coach Milan Dragicevic who then called White off the ice from practice. The paper work to allow White to be eligible to play was then signed before the NHL's 2pm deadline.
White made a name for himself when he stood on his head with the Prince George Spruce Kings stopping 91 of 93 shots in a 3-2 Prince George 5 overtime win over the Camrose Kodiaks in the 2007 RBC Cup Semi final. Jason Yuel scored the game winning goal in the longest game on Royal Bank Cup history.
