No explanation available of how the Ontario-born Wilfred Belmont White became “Tex” … Simply called “Tex White” in newspaper articles as if that was his given name ... Though his birthplace is often given as Hillborough, Ontario, fact-checking shows White likely hailed from Hillsburgh … From 1917 to 1923, played with the Barrie Canoe Club, Toronto Canoe Club, and Dunville Dunnies … 1920 press reports say he was not willing to pass the puck, but he soon got the word and would make a pass if a teammate was in a better position to score … Arrived in Pittsburgh with the Yellow Jackets in 1923-24 (11 goals, no assists) ... Stayed on as a Yellow Jacket in 1924-25 and then played for the Pirates in all five of their seasons (except when he was loaned to the New York Americans for 13 games at the end of 1928-29 and sent to the CAHL New Haven Eagles for 12 games in 1929-30) ... In December 1925, the Toronto Star said White “was a pest to any star player,” noting that he “checks closely and sticks like a wet undershirt” … Totaled eight goals and one assist for the 1929-30 Pirates ... 30-year-old Tex corralled three goals and no assists in his one month with the Quakers ... One of those goals was the game winner in the Quakers’ first victory, a dramatic 2-1 win over Toronto November 25 ... White’s last goal for the Quakers came on a long shot that eluded New York Americans star goalie Roy “Shrimp” Worters. White told the Philadelphia Inquirer that as he shot, he yelled, “Look out!” Instinctively, Americans defenseman Bill Brydge also yelled “Look out!” Worters was distracted. Clever, but the Quakers sent “Tex” packing six days later. … Traded with Rodger Smith to the Pittsburgh Yellow Jackets for cash on December 16, 1930, following the Quakers’ acquisition of Eddie McCalmon and D’Arcy Coulson the day before ... Played 35 games with the Yellow Jackets in 1930-31 (nine goals, seven assists) and 24 games with the Hornets (Yellow Jackets renamed) in 1931-32 (one goal, one assist) ... 1931-32 was Tex’s final season in hockey ... On December 2, 1948, Tex White, age 48, was found dead in his room at the Canadian Corps Club in Port Colborne, Ontario, where he had been a steward for the past three years.
