The team announced new forward Ryan White tore his left pectoral muscle and underwent surgery. General manager Ron Hextall said in a statement, "Ryan White had successful surgery to repair his left pectoralis muscle. His surgery was performed yesterday by Dr. Gerry Williams at Methodist hospital. The injury occurred during an off ice workout in Brandon, Manitoba last week. There has been no time table established on Ryan's return."
The Flyers signed White to a one-year, two-way deal at the beginning of the month.
White, 26, appeared in 52 games last season for Montreal scoring two goals and dished out four assists. In parts of five seasons with the Canadiens, he scored five goals and added 12 assists. White is a fourth-line forward who plays in defensive situations. He is a grinder who can be used to draw penalties.
