NEW YORK (CP) - Ottawa forward Todd White, who led the Senators in
scoring during a 10-3-2-0 run in December, has been named the NHL
player of the month.
White recorded seven goals and 11 assists and was plus-8 in 15 games
The Senators, who were unable to pay their players this week after a
proposed deal to re-finance the NHL club fell through, are the NHL's
hottest team right now. Going into Thursday's game against Atlanta,
the Sens were 18-3-4-0 in their past 25 games.
White recorded points in 11 of 15 games, including a career-high six-
game streak from Dec. 5 to 16. St. Louis Blues defenceman Al
MacInnis, Vancouver Canucks winger Markus Naslund, New York Islanders
goaltender Chris Osgood and Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Jocelyn
Thibault were also considered for the award.
