The Carolina Hurricanes have traded defenserman Ian White to the San Jose Sharks in exchange for the Sharks' second-round pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.
White, 26, came to the Canes in a November trade with the Calgary Flames. He played 39 games with Carolina, totaling no goals and 10 assists.
White's name first surfaced in trade speculation Wednesday and he was a healthy scratch that night in the road game against the New Jersey Devils. He practiced with the Canes on Thursday and was at the morning skate today at the RecZone.
