March 2019 – White has had a nice year in Ottawa. Playing centre in a difficult year for the Senators, White has held his own while having the majority of his starts not in the offensive zone. He currently owns the fifth highest high-danger scoring chance percentage on the team…as a rookie. White currently projects as a solid second line centre. As more offensive reinforcements enter the ranks, White will become a subtly dangerous forward. Jordan Deshane

June 2018 – The rookie pro finished tied for third on the Belleville Senators in scoring with 27 points in only 47 games and received a couple of separate call up stints with the NHL club and gradually got more comfortable and productive. White was held pointless in his first eight games of action but then went on to post six points in 13 games, ending the season with a three points in four game stretch. He received the call to represent his country and won a bronze medal as a member of Team USA at the WJC where he scored twice and added a helper in 10 games. White primarily received bottom-six minutes in the NHL but with changes coming he could see an uptick in playing time assuming he becomes a permanent fixture in the Senators lineup which is a good bet. Brad Phillips

January 2018 – White earned his first call up of the 2017-18 season but was used sparingly and strategically playing a team low 7:50 and starting 100% of his shifts in the offensive zone. This is probably just spot duty for White unless the Sens decide to strip it down and rebuild. Since recovering from a broken wrist at the start of the year white has score five goals and eight helpers in 27 games with Belleville and is a team worst minus-15. Brad Phillips

March 2017 – After a week-long staring contest, Colin White blinked first and has signed an amateur tryout agreement with Binghamton and will report immediately for duty. In two seasons at Boston College, White average over a point-per-game by scoring 35 goals and 41 assists in 72 NCAA games. He’ll gain some valuable experience down the stretch for Bingo and should be a strong candidate to make the big club in 2017-18. Brad Phillips

January 2017 – For the second year in a row, White has earned a medal at the world junior championship, but this time it’s a gold one. White led the champion Team USA in goals and was second among all players with seven, and added an assist in the team’s seven games. He was one of the Americans’ best forwards all tournament, coming through in the clutch with two goals in the semi-final against Russia and scoring the 4-4 equalizer against Canada in the final. Brad Phillips

December 2016 – White is one of the five returning member from the 2016 USA World Junior squad to make a repeat appearance on the 2017 preliminary roster. He’s a lock to make the team and should be among the front runners to don the ‘C.’ His numbers are slightly off pace from 2015-16, but he’s still hovering around the point-per-game mark with 10 goals, to lead Boston College, and five assists in 16 games. Brad Phillips

May 2016 – The do-it-all, heady White was one of the best Freshman in the NCAA throughout the whole season. His 19 goals and 24 assists placed him second on the Golden Eagles and fourth among all first year players in the nation, earning Hockey East All-Rookie Team and Second Team All-Star honours in the process. Returning to BC next year, he’ll be looked upon to spearhead the offence and should be a legit threat to challenge for the Hobey Baker. Brad Phillips

January 2016 – Colin White is returning from Helsinki with a bronze medal to show for his efforts. After Alex Debrincat was ejected in the first game of the tournament for spearing Travis Konecny, White was elevated to the first line with top prospects Auston Matthews and Matthew Tkachuk. The trio proved to be a formidable group, arguably the second best line in the tournament. Individually White had an excellent two week stretch posting three goals and four assists in seven game. He’ll be back for Team USA next year with an inside track to serve as captain. Brad Phillips

December 2015 – To the surprise of no one White has been named to Team USA for the upcoming World Junior Hockey Championship. As the cherry on top White will serve as one of three Alternate Captains. He’s had a sensational freshman season at Boston College and should be a fixture in the top six for the stars and stripes in Helsinki. Brad Phillips

November 2015 – There’s been no adjustment period for Colin White in his first season at Boston College. He sits sixth in the nation in scoring with 15 points in 10 games and is first among all freshman players. At this stage, it looks as though White is a virtual lock for Team USA at the upcoming WJHC in Helsinki. Brad Phillips

June 2015 – With their second first round pick, 21st overall, Ottawa selected Colin White from the USA National Program. This was the pick acquired from the Robin Lehner trade on draft day. Brendan Ross

February 2015 – Staying out of the infirmary has been Colin White’s biggest challenge in his draft season (battled mono to start the season) but his all-around package will certainly draw NHL suitors early come draft time. Outside of his quick feet and impressive agility, White is a prospect who relies on his breadth of skills rather than one or two specific high-end skills. A high-character player with blue-collar determination and the hockey sense to excel on both ends of the puck, White has the makings of an impact top-nine playmaking forward. His anticipation and awareness through 200-feet of ice earns him big minutes and it’ll be those skills and his mature game that scouts are enamoured with. Brendan Ross
