Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports that the Pittsburgh Penguins placed forward Colin White on waivers on Wednesday.
Since being called up by the Penguins in January, White has appeared in 11 games for them. In all those games, he failed to record a point. During his tenure with the Penguins, White’s average ice time was 9:57.
White played 21 games with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL before being called up, tallying five goals and five assists for ten points. After White participated in a professional tryout at Pittsburgh’s training camp, the Penguins signed him to a one-year contract in October.

In 68 games with the Florida Panthers last season, White, 26, finished with eight goals and seven assists for a total of 15 points. In 21 postseason games, he contributed two assists as the Panthers advanced to the 2023 Stanley Cup Final.

White, who was selected by the Ottawa Senators in the first round of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, had a career-high season in 2018–19 with the Senators, tallying 41 points with 14 goals and 27 assists. In 303 career games, White has 69 assists and 44 goals for 113 points across eight NHL seasons.

White played college hockey for two seasons at Boston College before turning pro, tallying 35 goals and 41 assists for 76 points in 72 games.

In the 2018 World Championships, White won a bronze medal for the United States internationally. In addition, he took home a bronze in the 2016 competition and a gold with the American squad at the 2017 World Junior Championship.

The Penguins are currently eight points behind the second Wild Card place in the Eastern Conference and eighth in the Metropolitan Division with a record of 24-21-8. They have lost two consecutive and are 3-5-2 in their past ten games. The Montreal Canadiens will be their opponent on Thursday at home.
