Philadelphia Flyers center Ryan White will miss five months according to general manager Ron Hextall.
White underwent surgery to repair his left pectoralis muscle in August after he injured it during an off ice workout.
The Flyers signed White to a one-year, two-way contract on Aug. 7.
The 26-year-old has five goals and 12 assists and 232 penalty minutes in 141 career NHL games, all with the Montreal Canadiens.
