The Ottawa Senators and forward Mark Stone have agreed to a one-year contract extension, avoiding arbitration.

The team had originally offered a $5-million salary, while Stone requested $9-million.

An arbitrator was set to rule on the negotiation Friday at noon, but the two sides were able to come to their own deal ahead of time.

Stone is set to collect $7.5-million over the course of the 2018-2019 NHL season.

The forward tallied 62 points in 58 games with the Sens last season, and has registered more than 20 goals in each of the last four seasons.
