History

2011-12: Colin White was the third-leading scorer for Noble and Greenough in the New England prep league as an eighth-grader. In 29 games he scored 16 goals with 28 assists. White had a goal and an assist in a 5-3 win over Exeter in the NEPSIHA semifinals before Noble and Greenough lost to Lawrence Academy, 3-2, in the championship game. White committed to attending Boston College in 2015-16 in March 2012 and represented Massachusetts at the USA Hockey Select 15 festival in the summer.

2012-13: White was the leading scorer for Noble and Greenough as a freshman and played for the Cape Cod Whalers U18 team. He scored 18 goals with 14 assists in 22 games for a Bulldogs team that finished 11-15-1. White scored 6 goals with 3 assists in nine games with the Whalers. He was invited to the USA Hockey National Team Development Program evaluation camp and accepted a spot with the program for the 2013-14 season.

2013-14: White left Noble and Greenough to join the USA Hockey National Team Development Program in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He appeared in eight games with the NTDP U18 team and was an assistant captain for the U17 squad; representing the USA in the 2014 U17 World Hockey Challenge in Canada. White scored 1 goal with 2 assists and was +3 with 4 penalty minutes with the NTDP U18 team. White was the second-leading scorer for the NTDP U17 behind Harvard recruit Jeremy Bracco. He scored a team-leading 33 goals with 30 assists and was +8 with 81 penalty minutes in 47 regular season games. White scored 10 goals with 8 assists and 4 penalty minutes in six games at the WHC as the USA captured a gold medal, shutting out Canada Pacific, 4-0, in the gold medal game.

2014-15: White returned to Ann Arbor for his second season in the NTDP program and was an assistant captain for both the NTDP U18 team and the USA U18 squad at the 2015 World Junior Championship. He scored 23 goals with 31 assists and 28 penalty minutes in 54 games for the NTDP U18 team. White scored 6 goals with 3 assists and was +8 with no penalties in the WJC as the USA won a gold medal, defeating Finland, 2-1, in the championship game. White skated for Team Olczyk in the 2014 All-American Top Prospects Game and was ranked 29th amongst North American skaters in the Central Scouting final rankings. He was selected by Ottawa in the first round (21st overall) in the 2015 NHL Draft.

Talent Analysis

White is a dominating two-way centre with elite hockey IQ. He has incredible anticipation and awareness, and his offensive skill-set gives him plenty of upside. He is a total-package prospect and a character player who looks great with a letter on his chest. Good hands make him a good shooter and a better stickhandler, and he makes creative yet safe moves. He shuts down opponent rushes and generates offense from the defensive zone out.

Future

White could become the team’s top-line center in the future, but with the position locked up for the next few seasons in Ottawa, there is no rush—and he will have plenty of time to develop with Boston College.
