Senators’ Chiasson awarded one-year contract by arbitrator
Alex Chiasson of the Ottawa Senators has been awarded a US$1.2 million, one-year deal in arbitration on Sunday. The restricted free-agent forward and the Senators went to arbitration with Chiasson asking for over $2 million and the team asking for $1 million. Chiasson was part of the trade that sent Jason Spezza to the Dallas Stars last summer. The 24-year-old had 11 goals and 15 assists in 76 games this past season. Mike Hoffman is Ottawa’s last major RFA left to sign. Hoffman’s arbitration hearing is set for Thursday.
