The Bruins locked up Brad Marchand last Friday with a four-year extension, and it looks like Tyler Seguin will be right behind.

At a conference call to announce the Marchand deal, Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli didn't want to get into any details about other players the team was working on extensions with, but did note that there have been discussions.

Seguin confirmed on Monday that there have been discussions regarding his signing an extension with the Bruins.

"There's been discussions," Seguin said to reporters at the team's charity golf tournament on Monday. "It's looking good, and I'm looking forward to hopefully playing in Boston for many years. I want to stay here and start a life here. That's what I'm looking for."

That's what the Bruins are looking for too, and the hope is a deal can be agreed upon before the impending NHL lockout on Friday.

Seguin scored a team-high 29 goals and tallied 38 assists for a team-high 67 points. He's unsure of where he'll play if a lockout does in fact happen, but noted that he has considered the AHL and overseas.
