Mark Stone is still open to signing a long-term contract with Ottawa.
"I was really happy with the way everything panned out," Stone said. "I don't think either side really wanted to take it to arbitration. We're really happy with the number and both sides are really happy to have the opportunity to try and work something out long-term. We weren't able to work something out this time around, but we have time to do so." He also expressed hope that Ottawa can compete for a playoff spot despite most pundits ruling that out as a possibility. Stone can become an unrestricted free agent next summer. Aug 10 - 8:11 AM

Mark Stone's focus is on the upcoming season and not on his contract situation.

"I'm just focused right now – got the contract out of the way – I just want to play hockey," Stone said. "It takes up a lot of time in your summer, a lot of phone calls, a lot of hours, talking with your representatives, so I'm not even thinking about it right now. I'm just excited to get underway and help this team win more hockey games." He narrowly avoided salary arbitration by agreeing to a one-year contract worth $7.35 million. Stone can become an unrestricted free agent next summer and Ottawa can't sign him to an extension until January 1, 2019.

Ottawa GM Pierre Dorion wants Mark Stone to sign a long-term contract with the Senators.

Stone inked a one-year deal with Ottawa worth $7.35 million to avoid salary arbitration, but he can become an unrestricted free agent next summer. "We're happy to have Mark under contract," Dorion said in a statement. "Mark is a great leader in every sense; a character person, passionate competitor and talented two-way player. 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."

Ottawa has signed Mark Stone to a one-year, $7.35 million contract.

The two sides avoided going to arbitration, but Stone can become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2018-19 season. He notched 20 goals and 62 points in only 58 appearances last year. Ottawa can't sign Stone to an extension until January 1, 2019.
Aug 3 - 10:04 AM

Mark Stone and the Ottawa Senators may still come to terms on a contract prior to Friday morning's arbitration hearing.

Stone can become an unrestricted free agent next summer if he is awarded a new deal through arbitration. Ottawa should be looking to lock him to a long-term agreement instead.
Aug 3 - 9:21 AM

Mark Stone has requested $9 million through salary arbitration.

The Ottawa Senators put in an offer for $5 million. Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman pointed out that the largest arbitration award was Shea Weber, who received $7.5 million. The hearing is scheduled for Friday.
Aug 1 - 9:55 AM

Mark Stone receives an arbitration hearing date of August 3.

Stone is coming off a cap hit of $3.5 million. He scored 20 goals and 62 points in 58 games last season. It wouldn't be surprising to see Ottawa sign him to a long-term contract before his hearing.
Jul 12 - 4:10 PM

Mark Stone filed for arbitration on Thursday.

Stone, who had cap hit of $3.5 million last year, can't get an offer sheet by another team now. The 26-year-old can only get a one-year award in arbitration and he would become an unrestricted free agent once that expires. Ottawa would like to prevent that from happening by getting Stone to sign a long-term contract.
Jul 6 - 2:29 PM

Mark Stone is a key restricted free agent for the Senators this off-season.

Ottawa GM Pierre Dorion told TSN 1200 on Tuesday that discussions on a new deal have only been "preliminary" at this stage. Stone just completed a three-year, $10.5 million contract and he will be looking for a raise. He missed the last 15 games of the regular season, but still co-led the Senators with 62 points in 58 appearances. Stone has been a 20-goal scorer for four straight years and he has surpassed the 60-point plateau in three of those campaigns.

Mark Stone's leg issue was apparently a high-ankle sprain.

Stone suffered the injury March 9 against Calgary. He will miss his 14th straight game Friday night and won't play Saturday versus Boston either. "He's being shut down. He's not going to play," said coach Guy Boucher on Thursday. "He wasn't very comfortable and he tried his very best to come back right until the very end. It's not worth the risk, he's not 100 percent, so he's done."
Apr 6 - 10:35 AM

Apr 3 - 4:43 PM

Apr 2 - 12:32 PM

Mark Stone (leg) skated Thursday morning and hopes to return to the lineup next week.

Stone, who has missed the last 10 games due to a leg injury, is targeting either Monday's match against Winnipeg or Wednesday's contest versus Buffalo for a return. He still leads the Senators in scoring with 62 points (20 goals, 42 assists) despite making just 58 appearances this season.
