The Ottawa Senators re-signed defenseman Victor Mete to a one-year contract worth $1.2 million, the team announced Wednesday.

Mete was among 17 players to file for arbitration last week, which is no longer necessary with the two sides reaching a deal.

The Senators claimed the 23-year-old off waivers from the Montreal Canadiens last season. He skated in 14 games with Ottawa, scoring one goal and adding one assist. Mete also notched three helpers in 14 contests with the Canadiens prior to joining the Senators.

"Victor was a really solid addition to our defense corps over the last month of the season last year," general manager Pierre Dorion said. "He's mobile, poised, and defensively aware. We're looking forward to seeing his progression in our lineup in 2021-22."

Mete has scored five goals and 31 assists across 199 career NHL games.
