A Six-Year Deal For Colin White In Ottawa

OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators have signed forward Colin White to a six-year contract.

"We've identified Colin as one of our core young players who will help drive our team's success in both the short and long term," said Senators general manager Pierre Dorion. "Colin plays the 200-foot game that is so coveted in today's NHL. He can skate, play on both special teams and is a character player and leader who loves hockey and this city. While he is coming off a season where he finished among rookie leaders in many categories, we also know he is just scratching the surface of his potential in this league. We're very happy that Colin will be a Senator for the next six years."

In his first full NHL season, White scored 14 goals and added 27 assists for 41 points in only 71 games. His 41 points were fifth among all NHL rookies, while his 27 assists were third and his 14 goals ranked seventh. He became only the eighth Ottawa Senator in team history to score 40 or more points in his rookie season.
