NEWARK, N.J. -- The New Jersey Devils have placed veteran defenceman Colin White and newcomer forward Trent Hunter on waivers with the intention of buying out their contracts, according to NHL.com.

White has one year and $3 million left on his deal. Hunter is due to make $2 million over the next two years. The Bergen Record is reporting that White will receive $1 million over each of the next two seasons, while Hunter would collect $666,667 for the next four seasons.

White has played his entire career with the Devils, who selected him in the second round of the 1996 draft. In 743 games, he registered 20 goals and 105 assists. The 33-year-old won the Stanley Cup with New Jersey in 2000 and 2003.

The Devils acquired Hunter from the New York Islanders last week in a trade for forward Brian Rolston. He has amassed 99 goals and 229 points in 459 career games -- all with the Islanders. A knee injury limited Hunter's 2010-11 campaign to only 17 games.
