White recorded career highs in goals (6), assists (6) and points (12) in 34 games with the Flyers last season. The 27-year-old also appeared in 11 American Hockey League games with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, scoring a goal and two assists.
He missed the first three months of the season recovering from an injury to his left pectoralis muscle suffered during an off-season workout.
The new contract gives White a $225,000 raise on his previous deal.
Per Generalfanager.com, the Flyers have 13 forwards, seven defensemen and a goaltender under contract for next season with a little over $6 million in cap space to work with heading into July 1.

The Boston Bruins will reportedly match any offer sheet signed by Dougie Hamilton once he becomes a restricted free agent this summer.

The Philadelphia Flyers and Edmonton Oilers, two teams outside the playoff picture, apparently weren’t too caught up on defensive details Saturday.
The Flyers, with Ray Emery in net for a surprise start, jumped out to a 3-1 lead in the first period, only to cough it up. The Oilers allowed three straight goals after grabbing an early lead. It was back-and-forth with plenty of chances.
And both teams were able to capitalize off odd-man rushes, taking advantage of the opposing team’s mistakes.
First, Jordan Eberle’s goal, his 20th of the season, which gave Edmonton a 4-3 lead early in the second period. Nice pass from Benoit Pouliot, and even better finish.
Now, here’s a look at a sweet passing play from unlikely candidates Ryan White and Zac Rinaldo. White finishes the playoff, giving Philadelphia a 3-1 lead late in the first period.
