Warrior Defensive Player of the Week: Joel White, Week 8

June 13, 2018

BOSTON (June 6, 2018)
– Dallas Rattlers defenseman Joel White was named the Warrior Defensive Player of the Week for Week 8. White and the Rattlers improved to 3-0 at Ford Center at The Star with a 22-11 win over the Cannons on Thursday night.  

White, 28, picked up six groundballs, caused two turnovers and was credited with two checks. He helped fuel Dallas’s five-goal run in the third quarter when he stripped Trevor Baptiste after a faceoff win and started a fast break that led to Drew Simoneau’s third goal of the game at 5:23 in the third. The goal was the Rattlers’ second in a 20-second span.  

This marks the second time this season White has been named Warrior Defensive Player of the Week, also earning the honor in Week 5 when he had two points and picked up six groundballs.
