White inks one year extension with Habs.

The Montreal Canadiens have re-signed forward Ryan White to a one-year contract worth $687.5 K, which is a slight pay raise from the $625K he earned in 2011-12. White, 24, was slated to become a restricted free agent on July 1.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Affordable contract for an energetic, physical fourth-line forward who missed most of last season to hernia surgery. White’s style made him a fan favorite in Montreal.
