TRADE: Canes Deal White to Silvertips

The Lethbridge Hurricanes Hockey Club announced today that forward Jaeger White has been traded to the Everett Silvertips in exchange for a sixth round draft pick in the 2017 WHL Bantam Draft.

The 1998-born forward appeared in 23 games this season with the Hurricanes totaling three points (1g-2a) along with seven penalty minutes and a plus-2 rating. In 68 career games with the ‘Canes, the Medicine Hat, AB, product scored a total of 19 points (5g-14a) and 17 penalty minutes.

White was originally drafted by the Hurricanes in the fourth round (72nd overall) in the 2013 WHL Bantam Draft.

  1. I think Jaeger deserved more than the paltry 3 shifts a game that he seemed to get with the Canes, but I think it may have been a case of "size does matter."

    I hope our GM at least approached his dad in the Hat first - MIGHT have been able to make a better deal...


    1. Now I'm curious what does his dad have to do with this? I'm not being snobby I actually wanna know. Does he work for the Tigers or?

  2. Peter

    Clouston (head coach in MH) is Jaeger White's stepfather.

    This is a good opportunity for White to get in some good icetime. He was up against a bit of a stacked roster here. We wish him the best of luck.


  3. There was a reason that one of the most offensively talented Bantam AAA players with size got drafted in the 4th round. Several teams passed on him multiple times. If they find linemates who will do all the work and put the puck on his stick he will rack up huge points. He has a real knack for scoring.
