SJ Picks A Canadian College Player
Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has signed goaltender Jordan White to a one-game amateur tryout. White will be in uniform tonight when the Sharks play the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Arena.

White currently plays for the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds (CIS). This season, he has posted a 7-11 record in 18 games, posting a 3.51 goals-against average and an .876 save percentage.

The six-foot-two, 175-pound native of Surrey, B.C. is currently in his second season with UBC.

In a related move, goaltender Antero Niittymaki was placed on injured reserve with a lower body injury.

Below are some stats on White.

He played 10 games in Prince George (WHL) in a season when Devin Setoguchi was there.

In his second season with the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds, White is the only goalie in the Canada West Conference to start in every one of his team's games this season (18) - ironic that his first game as a back-up this season is with the San Jose Sharks.

While playing in the WHL with Portland in 2007-08, he had the game of his life when he made 68 saves in a 4-0 loss to Seattle.

He played for UBC against the Norwegian Olympic Team last February in a tune-up game for Norway prior to the 2010 Olympics (lost 4-1).

White played in the Western Hockey League with Prince George (2006-07) and Portland (2007-08 and 2008-09) before joining UBC.
