After a successful 4 year OHL Junior career, spent primarily in Guelph, right-winger Sean Whyte was drafted by the Los Angeles Kings in 1989 and played 21 games with them during the seasons of 1991-92 and 1992-93.
In a total of 11 years, Sean’s playing stats are as follows:
- 1032 games
- 339 goals
- 530 assists
- 869 points
- 1442 minutes in penalties.
Whyte led the Phoenix Roadrunners in scoring one year and was also an IHL All-Star. When the Roadrunner franchise folded following the 1995-96 campaign, the fans honored Whyte by naming him to the All-Time Roadrunner All-Star Team as top right-winger.
Sean finished off his career back in Phoenix with a new club, called the Mustangs, a West Coast Hockey League franchise. During his time with the Mustangs, he also served as the club’s Assistant Coach, and in 2000, he helped them capture the WCHL championship.
Whyte also had an accomplished inline hockey career, playing a total of 6 seasons with the Anaheim Bullfrogs and the Phoenix Cobras. He also won a gold medal for Team Canada in the IIHF World Championships in 1998.
For the past 29 years, Sean has been involved with instructing and coaching young hockey players. He has worked for well-known hockey schools such as Can/Am, Huron, and Hawkesbury. Sean owned and ran his own hockey school in Canada for 9 years, called Northern Edge Hockey School. He has also run many other schools, clinics, and private lessons throughout the US and Canada in both ice hockey and roller hockey.
Sean states, “I take great pride in developing young hockey players. The most important aspect to remember when playing hockey is to have fun.
