I think his skating is adequate. To me his skating is deceiving because he has an awkward stride but I find he gets where he needs to get without speed hindering him.

Plus, centers are pretty always moving on the ice, as opposed to wingers who are more often stopped. This makes White's first few steps less of an issue.
