At least it's not Campoli either. So whatever. Could be a fine #7.

Colin White invited to training camp

http://blues.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=650448

ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced Tuesday that defenseman Colin White has been invited to training camp on a professional tryout basis.

White, 35, appeared in 54 games for the San Jose Sharks last season posting 4 points (1 goal, 3 assists) and 21 penalty minutes.

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound defenseman is a veteran of 12 National Hockey League (NHL) seasons, including 11 with the New Jersey Devils with whom he won the Stanley Cup in both 2000 and 2003. Overall, White has dressed in 797 career games, amassing 129 points (21 goals, 108 assists) and 869 penalty minutes. He has 17 points (3 goals, 14 assists) in 114 career playoff games.

The New Glasgow, Nova Scotia native was originally drafted by New Jersey in the second round (49th overall) of the 1996 Entry Draft.

Colin White, huh? Interesting. No guarantee he makes the team but its pretty clear that the Blues are pretty weak on the left side if they're bringing in White for a try-out. I could see him certainly beating out Woywitka for the 7th spot. I don't think he has enough left in the tank to be a serious option as Petro's partner though. In any event, it should make camp interesting and make Woywitka sweat!

Last 2 seasons in the Q he averaged 300 PIM


Another solid depth possibility.

Yeah, apparently they started referring to him as Tank but Tarasenko said he didn’t like Tank and preferred Vladi. Jackman informed him that they already have a Vladi (Sobotka) and now it sounds like Oshie came up with Frank as an alternative.

No matter what they end up calling him, I just think it’s a good thing that the locker room seems so lighthearted, joking, happy, etc. that they’re bothering to tease a rookie this much!

Am I the only person that would have rather seen Huskins back as a seventh defenseman than Colin White?

The Frank nickname came up in the town hall after the first practice. Panger was giving him a hard time and threw that out there (or Oshie threw it out there....can't remember who). Tarasenko didn't seem to thrilled by it (but it was hard to read if he understood exactly what was going on or if he just didn't care too much on the subject).

Think I'd rather Woywitka as the seventh. He can skate at least

Always good to have veterans around but I don't see how he could be an upgrade over woywitka. Love the cup experience though.

I'd pick White over Woywitka just because he's more physical and is a better veteran.

White has a ton of playoff experience too. Twice as much as Huskins and Woywitka combined.

I think they’re pretty equivalent.

The main question with White is, can he still skate well enough to keep up with Hitch’s transition system?

I'm pretty sure he was a whipping boy last year with fans on this site, but I hope he makes and it performs well when asked.

Who all is in camp?

Could this be a move to even out the pairings in camp?

A move to make guys like Wyowitka and Cole have to earn their spots on the roster?

If Redden is being bought out and is UFA (McKenzie indicating this on twitter right now), how high would you go in an offer to him?

Woywitka and Huskins aren't exactly spring chickens. 29 and 33. White just turned 35 by the way.
