Habs call up Ryan White, Tom Pyatt
PRESS RELEASE

MONTREAL – Canadiens General Manager Bob Gainey announced Wednesday that forwards Ryan White and Tom Pyatt have been recalled from the Hamilton Bulldogs. The two players will join the Canadiens in Boston for the game against the Bruins on Thursday night.

Tom Pyatt, 23, is in his first season with the Bulldogs after being acquired from the New York Rangers with Scott Gomez and Michael Busto on June 30, 2009. This season Pyatt has suited up in the Bulldogs 11 games recording 9 points (6 goals and 3 assists) tied for first place on the team. The 6’ and 185 lbs left winger has scored his six goals, including one on the power play, on only 25 shots on goal. Pyatt shows a +/-plus 8 ratio and was also assessed two penalty minutes. Last season, playing with the Rangers’ farm-team in Hartford, he recorded 37 points (12 goals and 25 helpers) in 73 games with the Wolf Pack.

Ryan White, the Canadiens fourth selection, 66th overall, in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, entered his second season with the Bulldogs in 2009-2010. Last season, the 6’ and 193 lbs forward played all 80 games of the regular season (along with Yannick Lehoux) with the Canadiens affiliate in Hamilton, recording 29 points (11 goals and 18 assists) with a +/-plus 10 and served 68 penalty minutes. So far in 2009-2010, White has tallied 7 points (3 goals and 4 assists) and is
fourth place on the Bulldogs scoring list. The 22-year old centreman who hails from Brandon, Manitoba, is also second among Hamilton forwards with 22 penalty minutes.
