White Signs With San Jose

It didn’t take former New Jersey Devil Colin White to find a home.

After being officially bought out by the team yesterday, White signed a one-year, $1 million deal with the San Jose Sharks. He’ll get to wear number 5 with the organization.

“We talked to a couple of teams, but the big thing was San Jose, the opportunity to the ultimate goal of winning,” White told Tom Gulitti of The Bergen Record.

White spent ten years with the Devils, winning two Stanley Cup championships. He overcame a career-threatening eye injury, suffered in training camp before the start of 2007. He had no hard feelings about the way his time ended in New Jersey.

“I have too many (good) memories,” he told Gulitti. “Obviously, the Cups and getting drafted and just the teammates I played with, the trainers, the coaches, equipment guys. It was a big family there. I think that’s the toughest part. Just having so many friends there, being there so long you get accustomed to going there. But, I’ll keep in touch with all those guys and now it’s just a different experience that I’m looking forward to.”

White will return to the Prudential Center on October 21.
