Bobrovsky is heading into the final year of his contract, which carries a cap hit of $7.425 million. He will be an unrestricted free agent on July 1, 2019.
It's widely assumed the two-time Vezina Trophy winner is seeking "Carey Price money," Portzline notes. Price signed an eight-year, $84-million extension last summer.
Bobrovsky, who will be 30 years old in September, posted a .921 save percentage and a 2.42 goals-against-average in 65 games last season.
