Colin Andrew White (born January 30, 1997) is an American professional ice hockey forward currently playing with the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League (NHL). The Senators selected him in the first round, 21st overall, in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career[edit]

White played high school hockey at Noble and Greenough School before joining the USA Hockey National Team Development Program (U.S. NTDP). As a member of the U.S. NTDP, he played the 2013–14 and 2014–15 seasons in the United States Hockey League (USHL). White's play was rewarded when he was invited to skate in the 2014 CCM/USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game.[1] In his final season with the U.S. NTDP, White recorded 17 points in 20 games.

White was selected in the first round, 21st overall, by the Ottawa Senators in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.

White played the 2015–16 and 2016–17 seasons with Boston College.[2] Following the 2016-17 season, White signed an amateur tryout with the Senators' American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Binghamton Senators on March 26. He recorded three points in three games. On April 2, the Ottawa signed White to a three-year, entry-level contract.[3] He made his NHL debut the following day in a 5-4 loss to the Detroit Red Wings.[4]

White split his first professional season between Ottawa and Binghamton. On February 6, 2018, he recorded his first career NHL goal in a 5-3 win over the New Jersey Devils.[5] He finished his first season in Ottawa with six points in 21 games.

In his first full season with Ottawa, White recorded 14 goals and 41 points in 71 games. On August 21, 2019, the Senators signed White to a six-year, $28.5 million contract extension.[6]
