Christian Djoos was awarded a one-year, $1.25 million contract with the Washington Capitals by an independent arbitrator Wednesday.

The defenseman, who turns 25 on Aug. 6 and was a restricted free agent, had his salary arbitration hearing in Toronto on Monday. He had 10 points (one goal, nine assists) in 45 games with the Capitals last season and no points in three Stanley Cup Playoff games.

Selected by Washington in the seventh round (No. 195) of the 2012 NHL Draft, Djoos has 24 points (four goals, 20 assists) in 108 regular-season games for the Capitals and one assist in 21 NHL playoff games.

Djoos won the Stanley Cup with Washington in 2018.
