An arbitrator has awarded Ottawa Senators defenceman Cody Ceci a $4.3 million contract for next season.

The team made the announcement Friday afternoon following an initial report from Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.

The arbitration hearing between Ceci and the Senators took place Wednesday in Toronto, where Ceci asked for $6 million and the Senators countered with $3.3 million. Ceci is eligible to go to arbitration again next season and can become an unrestricted free agent in 2020.

The 24-year-old Ottawa native is a key contributor to the Senators top-four. Last season, he averaged 23:20 minutes per game which was second behind only Erik Karlsson on the team.

Ceci had five goals and 19 points in 82 games last season. For his career, he has 25 goals and 92 points in 366 games.
