UBC tender signed by San Jose

Just before 2pm this afternoon, Jordan White of the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds was signed to a one game amateur tryout with the San Jose Sharks. The NHL stipulates a player must be signed by 2pm in order to play in that evening's game, and White just made the deadline. Sharks goalie Antero Niittymaki was injured in the game day skate necessitating the emergency signing.
This season White has a 7-11 record for UBC with a GAA of 3.51 and Save Pct. of .876 in starting every game for the T-Birds. Last season he went 4-7 with a 3.91 GAA. Also last season he was in net for UBC in an exhibition against the Norweigian Olympic team and lost 4-1.
He played 34 games over two seasons in the WHL an had a 4.83 GAA to go with a won loss record of 2-26-2. Yes, 2-26-2.
He did however have a game with Portland in 2007/08 in which he stopped 68 shots in a 4-0 loss.
