So reports Chuck Pleiness. White’s goal-saving face-save last night resulted in a broken cheek bone that will sideline him for a bit. Here’s hoping this doesn’t derail what’s been a strong start to his tenure with the Wings.
On the plus side, this will allow the team to call up Â Brendan Smith to serve the final game of his suspension. Since the team already has an extra defenseman to fill in for White with Mike Commodore, though, I wouldn’t expect Smith to stick around.
