Former Ottawa Senators first round pick Colin White has earned himself a new National Hockey League contract.

White signed a professional tryout offer with the Pittsburgh Penguins in early September after failing to secure another contract during the offseason, and it would now appear that White's bet on himself has paid off. On Saturday, the Penguins announced via their official website that they have come to terms with White on a new one year contract.

White's new deal, a two way contract, will pay him $775,000 at the NHL level and he will carry an identical cap hit while he plays in the NHL this season.

White is coming off a 68 game season with the Florida Panthers in which he scored 8 goals and added 7 assists for a total of 15 points, and was also a part of the Panthers run to the Stanley Cup final this summer.

White was selected in the first round (21st overall) of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft by the Ottawa Senators and this will be only the third NHL team he plays for during his NHL career thus far.
