Negotiations between restricted free agent right wing David Pastrnak and the Boston Bruins continue daily, general manager Don Sweeney said Monday.

"We continue to talk every day and we're hoping to find a landing spot," Sweeney said in Buffalo while attending the Prospect Challenge hosted by the Buffalo Sabres at HarborCenter. "We've spoken every day."

Pastrnak, 21, completed his three-year, entry-level contract last season, when he was second on the Bruins in goals (34) and points (70). He was too young this summer to opt for arbitration.

Pastrnak, the No. 25 pick in the 2014 NHL Draft, has 123 points (59 goals, 64 assists) in 172 games, all with Boston.

His agent, J.P. Barry, has proposed an eight-year contract, the Boston Herald reported.

"We're just going to continue to talk and try and find some common ground," Sweeney said.

The Bruins open training camp Thursday and their first regular-season game is against the Nashville Predators at TD Garden on Oct. 5.
