Normally a stellar left wing for Medicine Chest in the Whitehorse Oldtimer Hockey League, Dave White showed a whole other side of himself Sunday.

For the first in as long as anybody can remember, the street-wise ball hockey goalie put on the pads and filled in between the pipes for the first time on ice, recording a 7-0 shutout against the surging Firth Rangers.

While White cemented the defence, Ron Billingsley propelled the Medicine Chest offence with three goals to move the club into sole possession of fifth place. Tony Clennett added a pair and Tony Park and Erik Von Flotow each scored singles. Chris Simons contributed three assists and Roger Veilleux – who normally wears the pads – recorded two assists.
