Negotiations between the Tampa Bay Lightning and restricted free-agent forward Brayden Point reportedly remain at an impasse.

The two sides are not close to a new contract with training camp set to begin Sept.12, according to The Athletic's Joe Smith.

The 23-year-old broke out last season - the last on his entry-level contract - setting career highs with 42 goals and 51 assists for 92 points in 79 contests.
