TORONTO (AP) - Dallas Stars right winger Antti Miettinen was awarded an $885,000, one-year deal in salary arbitration Monday, and New York Rangers forward Sean Avery had his case heard by an arbitrator.
The 27-year-old Miettinen nearly doubled his salary of $450,000 last season, when he scored 11 goals with 14 assists in 74 games.
A ruling is expected in Avery's hearing Tuesday or Wednesday morning.
The 27-year-old Avery had a career high 48 points (18-30) last season with Los Angeles and the Rangers while providing his usual physical brand of game.
He's expected to get a raise from the $1.1 million he made last season.
