White heading back to Philly

Peter White, the career leading scorer among active AHL players, was re-assigned to the Philadelphia Phantoms by the NHL's Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday.

A three-time winner of the John B. Sollenberger Trophy as the AHL's scoring champion, White has compiled 207 goals and 421 assists for 628 points in 529 career AHL games since 1992. He ranks 27th on the AHL's all-time points list and 21st in assists.

White had six goals and 10 assists for 16 points in 15 games with the AHL's Norfolk Admirals this season. The Admirals and Phantoms both play in the AHL's South Division.

A native of Montreal and a graduate of Michigan State University, White led the AHL in scoring in 1994-95 with Cape Breton, and again in 1996-97 and 1997-98 with Philadelphia, finishing with exactly 105 points each season. He has won two Calder Cup championships (1993, 1998), has appeared in three AHL All-Star Games (1997, '98, '99) and was twice named an AHL Second Team All-Star.

White, who recorded 361 points in 299 games with the Phantoms from 1996-2000, has also appeared in 211 career NHL contests with Edmonton, Toronto, Philadelphia and Chicago, recording 23 goals and 36 assists.
