BOLTON -- Speaking before the Bruins' annual golf tournament at The International, Bruins right winger Tyler Seguin said that he would like to sign his next contract before the expiration of the current collective bargaining agreement (Saturday), and that he's comfortable with where things stand in negotiations.
"There's been discussions," Seguin said. "It's looking good, and I'm looking forward to hopefully playing in Boston for many years."
The 20-year-old Seguin is set to enter the final year of his entry-level contract, and fellow 2010 draft stars Taylor Hall (seven years at $6 million per) and Jeff Skinner (six years, $5.75 million per) have already signed their next contracts.
Seguin, who led the Bruins with 29 goals last season, said that the sides started talking after the season and that negotiations have "definitely picked up quite heavily since then." He added that negotiations have been "all positive" and that there is enough interest on both sides to get a deal done.
"I want to stay here and start a life here," Seguin said. "That's what I'm looking for."
It is unclear where Seguin would be able to play if the season were to be delayed by a lockout. With agents working the phones to make sure their clients have places to play this season, Seguin said he doesn't know where he might end up.
"I'm not sure," he said. "I'm headed to New York for two days to see what's going on and then talk to my agent a bit more. Obviously, I want to be playing hockey, NHL first, and then I've thought about AHL, thought about going overseas, but nothing I can confirm on right now."
