The progress of Ian White

Ian White, of the Toronto Maple Leafs, is not a superstar, but he is a defenceman turned forward. Last season while playing solely in the backend for the Leafs he scored 5 goals and had 21 points in 81 games. Lets take a look at his mug shot from last season...

This season, he had a tough time getting into the Leafs' lineup. He played in nearly all of Toronto's preseason games, but was a healthy scratch for the first 11 games of the regular season. For the last 3 games of the preseason, the Leafs made an interesting move and put Ian White on forward, only because they had too many defencemen. Lets take a look at White during the preseason.

He finally got into the lineup on Sunday, November 2. He played forward and scored a goal in his first game of the season. One couldn't help notice that something was different. Take a look.

The power of the "stache". Since sporting that tickler Whitey has 2 goals and 5 points in 6 games. We'll see how well the "stache" can play for the rest of the season.
