The puck appears to be in David Pastrnak's corner.

The Boston Bruins have reportedly offered the restricted free agent a long-term contract worth $6 million per season, according to Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe.

Dupont adds:

(The Bruins) are leaving it up to him to elect the length - six or seven years. Pastrnak has yet to bite on what would be a guarantee of $36 million or $42 million, his average wage only $125,000 per annum short of Brad Marchand’s deal (eight years, $49 million).

Pastrnak recorded 34 goals and 36 assists in 75 games last season, seven points fewer than Edmonton's Leon Draisaitl - who recently signed an eight-year, $68-million deal - in seven fewer games.

Boston's training camp is set to begin in approximately three weeks, and general manager Don Sweeney has stated emphatically that the winger will not be traded.

According to the NHL's collective bargaining agreement, if Pastrnak does not sign prior to 5 pm ET on Dec. 1, he can't play this season.
