The Bruins and the camp for veteran right winger Jarome Iginla are talking contract extension, according to reports out of Montreal. Iginla turns 37 years old this summer and scored 30 goals for the Bruins in his first season in Boston, and led the B’s with five goals scored during their short playoff run.

While Iginla was a good fit on the line with David Krejci and Milan Lucic during the regular season, the forward group underwhelmed during the postseason when long, cycling shifts didn’t consistently translate into goal production.

It doesn't appear anything is imminent between the two sides, but the news is a positive sign he'll be returning to Boston.

Both Iginla and the Bruins voiced a desire to continue the relationship next year and beyond despite a playoff run that fell short of expectations.

“I thought he started out a little slow when he came on, but he came on late and he came on strong. Obviously he’s a leader, he’s the captain of another team for a long time and he came in and added in an element to our group, especially the forward group,” said Bruins President Cam Neely during the end-of-season press conference last month. “He ended up scoring 30 goals, which is not easy in this league anymore.

“We would like to try and see if we can figure something out moving forward with him. We will see where that goes but I thought he fit in really well with our team.”

Given a very tight cap situation for the Black and Gold that sees them with roughly $7-9 million in cap space – depending on the final salary cap number for 2014-15 – to re-sign restricted free agents Torey Krug, Matt Bartkowski and Reilly Smith, find a backup goaltender and make decisions on unrestricted free agents in Shawn Thornton and Iginla, it’s believed the Bruins are pushing hard to sign Iginla to a one-year contract very similar to the 2013-14 deal that paid him $1.8 million base salary.
