Mark Stone Signs Three-Year Extension With Ottawa Senators

Mika Zibanejad isn’t the only young forward the Senators locked up on Thursday. Shortly after announcing the Mika Zibanejad signing, the Senators announced that they’d come to an agreement on a three-year contract extension for Calder finalist Mark Stone.

Stone’s deal comes with an AAV for $3.5 million, with the split on those years running $2.25M, $3.75M, $4.5M, according to the Senators official Twitter. He is coming off a three-year entry level deal that carried an AAV of $873,333, according to General Fanager.

In his rookie season, the 23-year-old winger scored 26 goals and 38 assists through 80 games. He also posted an impressive 2.2% CF%Rel, building on his truncated 19-game campaign the year before, where he posted a 6.0% CF%Rel. Stone had a very good rookie season and the Senators showed that they believe he’ll build on this season by giving him the same cap hit as top line center Kyle Turris.
