Cape Breton Post - - Sports -

PITTSFORD, N.Y. — A per­son fa­mil­iar with ne­go­ti­a­tions tells The As­so­ci­ated Press the Buf­falo Sabres and Jack Eichel are dis­cussing a con­tract ex­ten­sion that could run the NHL max­i­mum eight years.

The per­son spoke on the con­di­tion of anonymity on Wed­nes­day be­cause the talks have been pri­vate since for­mal ne­go­ti­a­tions be­gan a lit­tle over a month ago. Sabres owner Terry Peg­ula de­clined to as­sess the sta­tus of ne­go­ti­a­tions ex­cept to say no dead­line has been set and that both sides are com­mit­ted to reach­ing a deal.
