The Carolina Hurricanes and Andrei Svechnikov have started talking about a new deal.
Svechnikov still has a year left on his entry-level deal and both sides will consider a bridge deal or a long-term contract extension. "We started talking," GM Don Waddell said. "Andrei's got another year left on his contract, but we have this time in our favor right now ... Our goal is to keep Andrei here for a very long time. Saying that, with the economics the way they are right now around the league, it might make sense to do a bridge deal. I think the player definitely wants to be here. His representation's been very forthright about that (and) we obviously want Andrei here. So we're keeping it open-minded. There's no timetable if this happens two weeks from now or two months from now, but one way or another, there's no doubt that we'll sign Andrei at some point to some kind of extension." Svechnikov had an outstanding sophomore season with 24 goals and 61 points in 68 games. He is only 20 and is one of the rising stars in the NHL. Oct 03 9:06 am (EST)
