Florida Panthers forward Colin White recorded an assist in Tuesday's loss versus the Chicago Blackhawks.
White notched his helper on Eetu Luostarinen's third-period tally, but the Panthers eventually fell 4-2 to the Blackhawks. He's off to a nice start with his new club, notching six points through seven games, albeit with just nine shots on goal. In a bottom-six role without power-play reps, White should be left on the waiver wire.
Florida Panthers forward Colin White scored a goal Saturday versus the Buffalo Sabres.
White tallied his first goal as a Panthers with just under six minutes to go in the first period. The former Ottawa Senator added two shots on goal in a fresh start after five underwhelming seasons in Ottawa. He skated 13:31 on the Panthers' third line and will need to prove plenty to gain the attention of prospective fantasy owners.
Colin White had an assist on Tyler Ennis's third period goal in Ottawa's 5-2 loss to Vancouver on Tuesday. He chipped in two shots and one hit in 17:33 of ice-time.
It's been a very quiet season for the 22-year-old forward. This was just White's sixth point of the season (two goals, four assists) through 21 games played. This represents is a major step back from his 41 points in 71 games in his first full NHL look last season. White has been averaging consistent ice-time (16:29) and is getting a solid look on the power-play (2:26 per-game) and yet, it still has translated to fantasy production. Until he proves otherwise, White shouldn't be on your radar.
Colin White scored his 9th goal of the season on Saturday when the Senators lost 5-2 to the Montreal Canadiens.
Colin White now has 22 points through 33 games played this season. He should continue to improve as the season rolls on, especially if he continues to play on a line with Mark Stone and Brady Tkachuk.
Colin White picked up his 12th assist of the season on Friday night in the Ottawa Senators 4-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings. White finished the game with 2 SOG, a +2 rating and 18:11 of ice time.
Colin White is a name to watch going forward. White gets time on the Senators power play, has good line mates in Mark Stone and Brady Tkachuk, and is a young player still figuring out the NHL game. We should see his point production continue to grow as he gets more comfortable this season.
