If there is any confusion about Max Pacioretty's long-term aspirations, his agent, Allan Walsh, is attempting to set the record straight.

Walsh's comments come just two days after the Montreal Canadiens captain confirmed he and the team are not discussing an extension.

Pacioretty signed on with Walsh this summer after mutually parting ways with former representative Pat Brisson.

As Walsh indicates, the Habs have attempted to trade Pacioretty, but a deal with the Los Angeles Kings may not have been the only move that ultimately fell through. The team also reportedly had a three-way trade in place at the draft which would have shipped Pacioretty to the New York Islanders.

The 29-year-old can become an unrestricted free agent next summer.
