The Ottawa Senators will pay defenseman Cody Ceci $4.3 million next season in a one-year deal settled by an arbitrator on Friday.

Ceci, 24, was a restricted free agent coming off a two-year deal. He will become a restricted free agent again next July 1.

His previous deal paid him $5.6 million over two seasons.

The Senators drafted Ceci 15th overall in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

Ceci finished last season with five goals and 14 assists in 82 games. He has 25 goals and 67 assists in 366 career NHL games, all with Ottawa.

The Senators avoided arbitration with forwarding Mark Stone, 26, who signed a one-year deal for $7.35 million on Friday.

General manager Pierre Dorion said the stop-gap deal for Stone allows the team to work on a long-term extension for the budding star.

"Mark is a great leader in every sense; a character person, passionate competitor and a talented two-way player," Dorion said. "Signing him is the first step in a process that allows us to continue to negotiate a long-term deal in the new year. We look forward to having a long and successful relationship with Mark."
