The pride of New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, rugged defenceman Colin White was drafted 49th overall in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft by the New Jersey Devils.

White made his NHL debut during the 1999-00 season. In the playoffs, White played all 23 games and helped the Devils win their second Stanley Cup in franchise history. In 2000-01, he helped lead the Devils to an Atlantic Division title with a club-record 48 wins and 111 points and during the playoffs, and helped the Devils win their second straight Prince of Wales Trophy before losing to the Avalanche in the Stanley Cup finals. After a solid rookie season, White was recognized as a member of the NHL's All-Rookie Team.

In only his fourth NHL season with the Devils in 2002-03, White reached the Stanley Cup finals for the third time in his career and was a pillar on the Devils blue line as they eliminated the upstart Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in seven games.
