It would appear nothing has changed in terms of Max Pacioretty's uncertain future.

At his charity golf tournament Tuesday, the Montreal Canadiens captain told reporters, including TVA's Renaud Lavoie, that no contract extension talks are happening at the moment.

Canadiens owner Geoff Molson told the assembled media including TSN that the relationship between Pacioretty and the organization's brass is "fine," and both Molson and general manager Marc Bergevin said they expect Pacioretty to attend training camp.

Pacioretty is entering the final season of his current deal after reportedly nearly being traded at the draft and at the deadline in February.

In July, The Athletic's Marc Antoine Godin reported there would be no negotiations and that Bergevin intended to trade the talented 29-year-old forward as soon as possible.
