Seguin talks pick up

Contract negotiations between the Boston Bruins and young star Tyler Seguin began recently, TFP has learned, but talks should pick up steam in the near future.

With the Carolina Hurricanes signing Jeff Skinner to a six-year contract, and the Edmonton Oilers locking up Taylor Hall to a seven-year extension, Seguin appears to be next in line.

Seguin, 20, exploded for 29 goals and 38 assists in 81 games with the Bruins last season.

The Stanley Cup winner All-Star could see a deal in the six-to-eight year range.

It's unclear if a deal will be reached before Sept. 15, when the current Collective Bargaining Agreement expires, though it's believed the Bruins would now like to get a deal done before that time period.

The Bruins drafted Seguin second-overall in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
