Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin announced Tuesday the signing of forward Ryan White to a one-year contract (2012-13). As per club policy, financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed. Our sources say the deal is worth just over $687,000.00 and that White and his agent are extremely pleased with the contract.

White, 24, completed his third season with the Canadiens in the NHL in 2011-12. In 20 games, the right winger notched three assists. He registered 12 shots on goal, 61 hits and served 61 penalty minutes, while averaging 14:31 seconds of ice time per game. White missed a total of 58 games due to injuries.

White totaled five points (4 goals, 1 assist) in four games with the AHL Bulldogs during the 2011-12 regular season following his assignment to Hamilton on February 6 for conditioning purposes as a result of a sports hernia suffered at training camp. He collected 10 shots on goal, served 26 penalty minutes and maintained a +2 plus/minus differential.

Since 2009-10, White has registered 10 points (2 goals, 8 assists) in 63 NHL regular-season games. The 6-foot, 199-pound forward has also recorded 115 penalty minutes and 47 shots on goal.

A native of Brandon, Manitoba, White was the Canadiens’ fourth pick (third round, 66th overall) at the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.
