The Nepean Raiders have added a new face, signing centre Mackenzie White from their Midget AAA program.
The Nepean-native has played in the AAA system the past two years and was the team captain last season. White led the team in scoring with 42 pts. in 44 games.
The Raiders selected him in the eighth round of the 2015 CCHL Bantam Protected Draft.
White was also a first round pick of the OHL’s Oshawa Generals in 2017 and attended the team’s training camp earlier this month.
Despite his impressive pedigree, White will have to fight for lost time his new squad.
“He’s one of 12 forwards trying to earn important minutes,” said Raiders GM Randy Watt.
White made his debut for the CCHL Raiders Sept. 27 at the Rockland Nationals adding an assist on co-captain Kari Belec’s first period goal.
