Sens forward Colin White shifted his training to Ottawa last week in order to continue to work with the team's Strength and Conditioning coaches during the offseason.

In addition to his summer workouts, White also found some time for a few extracurricular activities which included meeting one of the biggest DJs in the world.

"One of our friends is good buddies with Kygo's manager," said White. "He shot him a text and asked if we could meet up which was really cool. We hooked him up with a Sens jersey too and he held it up a few times during his show."

This marked White's first ever trip to Bluesfest and while he had a blast attending last Tuesday's shows with a group of friends that included Sens prospect Josh Norris, he admitted that he probably doesn't have the motor for the full event pass.

"It was fun but I don't think I could go to every concert," White joked. "That'd be a long two weeks for me."

While in town last week, White also made a visit to the Ottawa Senators Summer Hockey Camps to surprise the campers as well as sign a few autographs and pose for some photos.

"I love doing that kind of stuff," he said. "I was that kid that spent his summer at hockey camps so to get to meet these kids in Ottawa and spend a little time with them is something that I really enjoy doing."

White, who is currently a restricted free agent, also spoke briefly on his contracts talks with the Senators. No specifics were shared but the 22-year-old centre reaffirmed that his focus remains on staying in the Nation's Capital.

"I love it here in Ottawa," said White. "The last two years have been pretty special for me since I've been able to get to know all the players and staff. Everyone here has always taken really good care of me so it's definitely the place I want to be."

"We're a young team with a bright future and it's a lot of fun having guys like Brady Tkachuk, Logan Brown and Josh Norris in the organization now," he continued. "I've seen these guys play for years so to get the opportunity to play and grow with them is something I'm really looking forward too."
