Analysis: Often described as intimidating to play against, White is a game-changer when focused. He has ample speed, good vision, and a pin-point accurate wrist-shot, which is among the best of his draft class. His two-way skills are further along than most his age and he is confident with the puck heading into traffic. He has the potential to be a two-way sniping centerman if he continues on the same path.

Scout Update: With the early and unexpected departure of future star Kyle Okposo to the NHL, and the long term injury to Ryan Stoa, White has been given the opportunity to step up into a more demanding offensive role and prove to the Golden Gopher coaching staff that he is the future power center that think he can be.
