PITTSFORD, N.Y. -- A person familiar with negotiations Authentic Andrew Nicholson Youth Jersey 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 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. "I can tell you this, We want Jack and Jack wants to be in Buffalo," Pegula said during a news conference at the Buffalo Bills training camp site in suburban Rochester. Pegula also owns http://www.authenticnetstore.com/Andrew_Nicholson_Jersey the Bills. In a text to the AP, Eichel's agent Peter Fish wrote: "We are talking and I would say that we will be continuing to talk." The 20-year-old Eichel has one season remaining on the entry-level contract he signed after being selected with the second pick in the 2015 draft -- one spot behind Connor McDavid. Eichel will only be eligible to become a restricted free agent whose rights can be retained by the Sabres next summer, though teams often prefer locking up their young stars well before that happens. That was the case with McDavid Bernard King Authentic Jersey last month, when the Edmonton Oilers signed their captain to an eight-year, $100 million contract that kicks in for the start of the 2018-19 season. The deal will make the 20-year-old McDavid, who is coming off an MVP year, the NHL's top-paid player with an annual salary for $12.5 million. As of now, the next top-paid players are Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price and Chicago Blackhawks forwards Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews, who are each making $10.5 million per season. Eichel is coming off a season in which he had a team-leading 57 points and finished second with 24 goals in 61 games despite missing the first two months of the season with a sprained left ankle. A fraction of a point separated him http://www.knicksstoreonline.com/Bernard_King_Jersey from collecting a $2 million performance bonus by just missing out on finishing among the NHL's top 10 in points-per-game production. Eichel finished 11th by averaging 0.934 points per game. He was edged out by Edmonton's Leon Draisaitl who finished 10th with 77 points in 82 games for a 0.939 average. New York Islanders captain John Tavares said he's had meetings with the team concerning a contract extension and that he wants to remain with the franchise. "I've enjoyed my time being an Islander, and I want that experience to continue," Tavares told TSN on Tuesday. "For me, I just want to get ready for the upcoming season and work on being the best player I can be for the Islanders. Tavares, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2009 draft, became eligible to sign an extension July 1 but is set to play next season on the final year of his six-year, $33 million contract. He led the #58 Kwon Alexander Womens Jersey Islanders with 66 points last season, and he is expected to be ready in time for the 2017-18 season after having surgery on his right hand in April. "I think I'll just keep that all internal," Tavares told TSN about the negotiations. "We've had great open communication; it's obviously a great place to play." In his eight seasons with the Islanders, Tavares has 235 goals and 302 assists. The four-time All-Star has led the Isles to three playoff appearances.

"Mikael has been an important part of our http://www.authenticbuccaneersofficial.com/Nike-Kwon-Alexander-Jersey.html club for the last five years, and he showed a great amount of growth with an impressive performance last season," Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher said in a statement. "People across the league are now surely aware of what our management group has always known: Mikael has a tremendous level of talent and skill. Coupled with his excellent work ethic and tremendous character, we know he'll play a large role in the future success of our team, and we're thrilled to have him under contract moving forward." The Wild, who had a franchise-record 106 points last season, also avoided arbitration by signing Nino Niederreiter to a five-year, $26.25 million deal this offseason.
