Dallas Stars v Detroit Red Wings

Tomas Tatar is reportedly seeking a longer-term contract than the Detroit Red Wings are willing to give him at the moment.

The restricted free-agent forward’s camp is looking for a deal in the range of seven years, but the Red Wings have yet to offer more than five, according to Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press.

Tatar filed for salary arbitration and has a hearing scheduled for July 20.

If the two sides are unable to agree on a long-term deal before then, he’d be looking at a one-year pact that he recently admitted would “probably” be his last contract with the Red Wings.

Tatar led Detroit with 25 goals this past season, the final campaign of a three-year, $8.25-million deal he inked with the Red Wings in 2014.
