Penguins GM Jim Rutherford briefly reached out to Ehrhoff's agent, Rick Curran, about pursuing a contract extension, but the two sides decided it was best to hold off on negotiations.
"We've both agreed to set any further talks aside until the end of the season," Curran told TFP via email. "It's important to keep the season's on ice success in focus and not let the business end become a distraction."
Ehrhoff is earning $4 million with the Penguins this season and could sign for a similar annual salary over a multi-year deal in the off-season.
Curran acknowledged that there "will be plenty of time to address a potential contract extension."
A number of players in need of new deals have taken a similar approach to that of Ehrhoff and have decided to wait until their season has ended before hammering down a new contract.
The Los Angeles Kings and right wing Justin Williams have also recently pushed negotiations off until after the season.
In 43 games with the Penguins so far this season, Ehrhoff has registered three goals and 10 assists for 13 points, along with a plus-9 rating and 26 penalty minutes.
