Blues Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced Tuesday that defenseman Colin White has been invited to training camp on a professional tryout basis.
White, 35, appeared in 54 games for the San Jose Sharks last season posting 4 points (1 goal, 3 assists) and 21 penalty minutes.

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound defenseman is a veteran of 12 NHL seasons, including 11 with the New Jersey Devils, with whom he won the Stanley Cup in both 2000 and 2003. Overall, White has dressed in 797 career games, amassing 129 points (21 goals, 108 assists) and 869 penalty minutes. He has 17 points (3 goals, 14 assists) in 114 career playoff games.

The New Glasgow, Nova Scotia native was originally drafted by New Jersey in the second round (49th overall) of the 1996 Entry Draft.

White will wear No. 55 during training camp.

Finally, a Blue wearing #55 that doesn't suck!

No offence to Backman, Hecht, and Chebaturkin. They could all skate circles around Janssen.

No, I'm not still bitter.

Tom, I know you loved Cam deep down, you just need to admit it to yourself. lol

Definely look forward to see what white can do and if he can break with the team, I would think he's got a pretty good chance now that chorney was cut from camp today. Definely add a little experence to the very young bluenote blueline.

I just had to throw in one last anti-Cam rant, I promise that'll be the last one for a while! :gap:

I certainly wouldn't be offended if White made the team. More veteran presence on D is something I can more than live with!

Yea, the Redden signing all but killed white's hope to make this team. There isn't many holes on the Blues Blueline, so hate to see white go, but, I'm sure he could pick up another team pretty soon.
