“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.”

White was a first-round pick by the Senators in the 2015 NHL Draft. The 22-year-old Boston, Massachusetts native completed his third season with the team in 2018-19.

In his third season, he appeared in a career-best 71 games. He also had 14 goals and 27 assists for 41 points. He also had a -24 + / – and 24 PIM.

“This is something that both parties wanted all along,” White said. “I think it was the right move for both myself and Ottawa. I couldn’t be more proud to be a Senator for the next six years. If anything, I think it’s less pressure now because I can just play. Outplaying this contract is a goal of mine, so every year I just want to get better and continue to improve in any way that I can.”

In his career, he has appeared in 94 games. He has scored 16 goals and had 31 assists for 47 points. He also had a -23 + / – and 32 PIM.
