White earned an assist and two shots on goal over 19:44 of ice time in Saturday's 3-4 overtime win over the Oilers.
The Massachusetts native earned a secondary assist by leaving the puck for Thomas Chabot, who fed a centering pass to Bobby Ryan in the crease for a score. White now has 36 points (13 goals, 23 assists) through 64 games this season.
White (neck) will play in Saturday's contest against the Oilers, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.
White missed five games with this neck injury. The setback slowed some of the momentum the Massachusetts native had found in his first full NHL season -- White has racked up 35 points (13 goals, 22 assists) over 63 games.
Head coach Marc Crawford said White (neck) hasn't recovered as hoped and isn't ready to return, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.
This is certainly unfortunate news for a player who has made strides in his first full season in the NHL, racking up 35 points (13 goals, 22 assists) over 63 games. White has missed the last three games with this neck injury and seems likely to miss more time.
White (neck) won't leave with the team Monday ahead of Wednesday's game against the Canucks, but he could join in when the Senators travel to Calgary on Thursday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
White will skip at least three games as he battles a neck issue, though it sounds far from a certainty that he will join the team in Calgary. The 22-year-old pivot has made strides in his first full season at the top level, racking up 35 points -- 13 goals and 22 assists -- over 63 contests. His production comes on a Senators club that is lacking in the talent department following the trade deadline, which bodes well for him if the Senators' new pieces develop and they can add some more through the draft and free agency next offseason.
White is dealing with a neck injury that will prevent him from suiting up against the Maple Leafs on Saturday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Unfortunately, the Senators don't know when White will be fit to play in another game, but with any luck, the ensuing three-day break in the schedule will afford the burgeoning pivot enough time to make a full recovery. White's produced 13 goals, 22 helpers and five power-play points over 63 games this season.
