Senators’ Colin White out 6-8 weeks with broken wrist

Ottawa Senators GM Pierre Dorion and head coach Guy Boucher react to the news that rookie Colin White will be out 6-8 weeks after breaking his wrist in preseason game 1 against the Maple Leafs.

Ottawa Senators forward Colin White will be out for the next six to eight weeks recovering from a broken left wrist, the team announced Tuesday.

White blocked a shot in the final minutes of Monday’s pre-season game against the Toronto Maple Leafs and immediately left the game after remaining on the ice for some time.

The 20-year-old underwent surgery Tuesday morning.

White was the first-round pick (21st overall) by the Senators in the 2015 draft.
