The New Jersey Devils have placed Colin White and Trent Hunter on waivers with the purpose of buying out their contracts. They will become unrestricted free agents.
White will receive $1 million over each of the next two seasons, while Hunter gets $666,667 for the next four seasons. Those numbers will count towards the Devils cap hit in each of those years.
White has played his whole career, 743 regular season games and 111 playoff games, in a Devils uniform. He was selected in the second round of the 1996 draft and made his debut during the 1999-2000 season. He won the Stanley Cup with the Devils in 2000 and 2003.
Hunter played all of his 459 regular season games with the Islanders since making his debut during the 2002-03 season.
The departure of both players gives the Devils added cap space of $3,333,333 for the upcoming season.
