Peters Township's White ranked by NHL's Central Scouting

Matt White, a senior at Peters Township High School and member of the 2009-10 Pittsburgh Viper Stars 18 & Under AAA hockey team, made the final rankings of skaters by the National Hockey League's Central Scouting.

White was ranked No. 106 in the final report released by the NHL last Wednesday.

A 6-2, 195 center, White posted 78 points (36 goals, 42 assists) in 45 games for the Viper Stars. The University of Vermont recruit, where former Peters Township standout Rob Madore is the starting goaltender, is expected to sign with the school this month.

He helped the Viper Stars to a 42-27-7-1 record this season.

In addition to skating for the Viper Stars and Peters Township, White played for the United States Hockey League's Des Moines Buccaneers, a Junior A level team. White was also a member of Team USA in the 2008 World Junior A challenge. Team USA won the gold medal.

Christian Hanson, a center on the Toronto Maple Leafs, previously played for Peters Township before heading to Notre Dame. Dwight LaBrosse, who never played for the Indians but was from McMurray, was the ninth-round pick by the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2002. The goalie's last known team was the Des Moines Buccaneers (2003-04).
