Ottawa Senators center Colin White is expected to undergo surgery on his dislocated shoulder and be sidelined four-to-six months, head coach D.J. Smith announced Thursday.
White, 24, sustained the injury after administering a check on Dave Kampf during the first period of the Senators’ preseason game against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday. Smith said the following day that White was in line to miss a “significant amount of time.”
White recorded 18 points (10 goals, eight assists) in 45 games last season.
He has 88 points (33 goals, 55 assists) in 200 career games since being selected by the Senators with the 21st overall pick in the 2015 NHL Draft.
