Canadiens Claim Colin White Off Waivers from Penguins



Colin White

Colin White is expected to be on the ice when the Pittsburgh Penguins face Montreal this evening at PPG Paints Arena.

It will not, however, be as a member of the Penguins, because the Canadiens claimed him off waivers today.

White, who can play center or wing, did not have a goal or assist in 11 games with the Penguins this season. He attended their training camp on a professional tryout agreement and earned a two-way contract.

After claiming White, Montreal put forward Brandon Gignac on waivers, with the intent of assigning him to its farm team in Laval after he is not claimed by 2 p.m. Friday.

With White’s departure, the Penguins have 48 players under NHL contracts. That’s two below the maximum allowed.
