Flyers' Ryan White ejected for hit

DETROIT -- Philadelphia Flyers center Ryan White was ejected from his team's game against the Detroit Red Wings.

White was given a match penalty for using his right shoulder to hit Tomas Jurco in the head early in Sunday night's game.

White might face additional discipline from the NHL as a repeat offender. While playing for the Montreal Canadiens in 2013, White was suspended by the league for five games because of an illegal check.

White's penalty put the Red Wings on the power play for five minutes, but they failed to take advantage.
