Nikita Kucherov's agent, Dan Milstein, doesn't expect contract talks to begin with the Tampa Bay Lightning until the start of next season.
Kucherov, who can become a restricted free agent at the end of the 2018-19 campaign, can sign an extension as early as July 1. However, talks haven't begun yet and there isn't believed to be a need for a rush to get something done right away. Kucherov does have arbitration rights, but there doesn't appear to be any reason to panic if you are a Lightning fan. "He wants to stay in Tampa - he doesn't want to go anywhere," Milstein said. "Worst case, it's arbitration, they're not going to lose him. Both sides want him to be in Tampa." May 27 - 10:55 AM
