#2. Colin White, F, Panthers, 2022-23
Another young player that did not receive a qualifying offer, Colin White could prove to be a sneaky-good signing if the Flyers can get him on a PTO. The 26-year-old spent this past season with the Florida Panthers, where he made a run to the Stanley Cup Finals alongside teammate and current Flyer Marc Staal.
White had spent the previous six years of his NHL career with the Ottawa but never showed much offensive promise. Still, his 41-point 2018-19 campaign shows the capability is there with the appropriate role. Last year, White had the worst offensive season of his career with just 15 points in 68 games, but still starred on a Panthers fourth line that primarily served to wear opponents down.
White can play both right wing and center and boasts a solid chunk of playoff experience – something that is rare for a 26-year-old on the open market. The Boston, MA native should have no shortage of interest as training camp starts to close in, but could be a very valuable trade piece down the road should the Flyers manage to pick him up.
