Forward Colin White agreed to terms on a three-year, entry-level contract with the Ottawa Senators on Sunday. Financial terms were not released.
White, chosen by the Senators with the No. 21 pick of the 2015 NHL Draft, had three points (one goal, two assists) on an amateur tryout with Binghamton of the American Hockey League. He is expected to join Ottawa for its game at the Detroit Red Wings on Monday (7 p.m. ET; FS-D, RDS2, TSN5, NHL.TV).
The Senators trail the Boston Bruins by one point for second place in the Atlantic Division and lead the Tampa Bay Lightning by five points for the second wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Eastern Conference.
White had 76 points (35 goals, 41 assists) in 72 games with Boston College, including 16 goals and 17 assists this season to help the Eagles advance to the Hockey East Championship game. He also had eight points (seven goals, assist) in seven games to help the United States win gold at the 2017 IIHF World Junior Championship.
