Colin White was drafted 49th overall in the second round of the 1996 NHL Entry Draft by the New Jersey Devils. The New Glasgow, Nova Scotia native spent three seasons (1994-1997) in the QMJHL with both the Laval Titan and the Hull Olympiques. During his time in the QMJHL, he was named to the All-Rookie Team and accumulated 27 points and 636 penalty minutes in 137 total games. He spent the next three seasons (1997-2000) with New Jersey’s AHL team, the Albany River Rats. He did, however, appear in 21 games with the Devils during the 1999-00 season, along with all 23 playoff games and helped New Jersey beat the Dallas Stars in six games to become the Stanley Cup Champions. He appeared in all 82 games with the Devils in 2000-01 and set career-highs in assists (19), points (20), penalty minutes (team-leading 155) and plus/minus (+32 rating) that have yet to be broken. He then played in all 25 post-season games and made it to the Stanley Cup finals for the second year in a row, but this time lost to the Colorado Avalanche in seven games. That same year, he was named to the NHL All-Rookie Team. He produced a career-high 5 goals in 2002-03 and again helped the New Jersey Devils become Stanley Cup Champions when they beat the Anaheim Ducks in seven games. He led the Devils in penalty minutes three times and tied for first place once, all within the 2000-2006 seasons. He signed a six-year contract with the Devils in July 2006, but missed 38 games during the following two seasons due to numerous injuries. He then appeared in 71 games during the 2008-09 season and racked up 18 points, the most since he recorded 20 points in 2000-01. Throughout his 9 NHL seasons, he has appeared in the playoffs every year. At 6’4 and around 215 pounds, White plays a physical game and has been among leaders in penalty minutes throughout his career, except for the last few seasons. He is mostly a defensive defenseman, as he is not great on the offense.
