The Pittsburgh Penguins are inviting Colin White to training camp on a professional tryout, the club announced Saturday.

White spent last season with the Florida Panthers after playing his first six with the Ottawa Senators. The 26-year-old forward suited up for all 21 of the Cats' playoff games this past spring on their improbable run to the Stanley Cup Final.

He collected eight goals and seven assists over 68 games during the regular season, adding a pair of postseason helpers. White averaged a career-low 9:38 of ice time prior to the playoffs, and that figure dipped to 7:25 in the postseason.

The Senators drafted the Boston College product 21st overall in 2015. He signed a one-year deal with the Panthers as a free agent in July 2022 and was a pending restricted free agent heading into this summer. The Cats opted not to issue him a qualifying offer, putting him on the open market.

White tallied a career-best 14 goals and 27 assists across 71 contests in 2018-19. He then inked a six-year, $28.5-million pact with Ottawa in August 2019, but the Sens placed him on unconditional waiviers and bought him out of the final three years on July 5, 2022.

He won gold with the United States at the Under-18 World Championship in 2015, as well as the World Junior Championship two years later. White also helped the U.S. claim bronze at the World Championship in 2018.
