If the vision in Devils defenseman Colin White’s damaged right eye somehow miraculously returned to normal, he says he would not wear a protective visor.
“If I had my eyesight, I wouldn’t be wearing one,” White said this morning after participating in an informal skate at the team’s practice facility at Prudential Center.
When White reports with the other Devils’ veterans for training camp physicals next Friday, it will mark the one-year anniversary of his injury. During a training camp practice on Sept. 19, 2007, he was struck in the right eye by a deflected shot off the stick of Nicklas Bergfors.
Although White’s vision in his right eye improved marginally at first, he says it hasn’t gotten any better since the end of last season and doctors have told him, “This is going to be it.”
