White has been skating the last few weeks. He even went on the road trip with the team while skating with them. When they arrived back in Philadelphia he saw a doctor to see if he would get the green light.
After the Flyers beat the New Jersey Devils last night, Coach Craig Berube announced that White has been cleared for contact. Though, he is still 1-2 weeks away from returning to the lineup.
Ryan White was cleared for contact yesterday, but Hextall says he’s still a week or two away from playing.
