Pastrnak Receiving Interest From KHL
Could the Boston Bruins be without David Pastrnak for the upcoming 2017-18 season?
That’s what teams for the KHL in Russia are hoping for as the Bs and their star forward continue to be at an impasse on a contract. According to Alvis Kalnins of Hockeybuzz, there were multiple teams in the KHL that have offered a contract to the young forward in an effort to lure Pastrnak from the Bruins.
Rumblings have indicated that Pastrnak could play in the KHL this season. Has multiple offers.

Joe Haggerty of CSNNE said that the Bs had offered Pastrnak a contract at around six million dollars per season for six to seven years, but the camp for the forward countered with an annually salary of eight million over eight seasons.
The Bs will begin camp this month and start their season as well in early October. Currently David Krejci is the highest paid player on the Bs roster with an annual salary of $7.25 million dollars. Pastrnak is currently a restricted free agent and his agent JP Barry would not comment on the talks with KHL teams, according to Haggerty.
