Report: Pastrnak unlikely to start camp with Bruins as talks continueSeptember 13, 2017 5:18pm

David Pastrnak isn't expected to be in Boston when Bruins training camp opens Thursday.

The restricted free agent remains in his native Czech Republic while he waits to sign a new contract, reports Sportsnet's Chris Johnston.

Meanwhile, communication between the team and Pastrnak's representatives continues, Johnston adds.

There's been a lot of dialogue between the #bruins and Pastrnak's camp in the last 24 hours. Still discussing deals of varying lengths.— Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) September 13, 2017

Pastrnak is believed to be using an eight-year, $68-million deal recently signed by Edmonton's Leon Draisaitl as a point of comparison. His agent recently confirmed the max term has been discussed, but the Bruins appear reluctant to make him the highest-paid player on the team at this stage of his career.

The Bruins will kick off their preseason schedule Monday against Montreal.
