38-YEAR-OLD FORMER NHL DEFENCEMAN SIGNS IN THE ECHL

JAN 24, 2023  (14H26)      COOPER GODIN
After performing quite well in the Federal Prospects Hockey League, former NHL defenceman Ian White has landed an ECHL contract with the Norfolk Admirals.

"Norfolk Admirals Professional Hockey Club, proud ECHL affiliate of the Carolina Hurricanes, announced on Monday that defenseman Ian White has signed a standard player contract." The Admirals said in a statement on Tuesday.

White, 38, returned to professional hockey last season after a six-year absence, signing with the Columbus River Dragons (FPHL). He went on to sign for the Motor City Rockers, an expansion team in the FPHL, for the 2022-23 season. In 25 games for the Rockers, he had 19 points (four goals, 15 assists), six penalty minutes and an even-rating.

The Steinbach (Manitoba) native spent parts of eight seasons in the National Hockey League with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Calgary Flames, Carolina Hurricanes, San Jose Sharks and the Detroit Red Wings. In 503 career NHL games, White had 179 points (45 goals, 134 assists), 254 penalty minutes and was a plus-46.
