Jordan Eberle said on Tuesday that he and the Islanders have not yet discussed a contract extension.
Eberle, 28, is entering the final year of the six-year $36 million contract he originally signed as a member of the Edmonton Oilers.
"To be honest I haven't had any conversations with anybody," Eberle said, per NHL.com. "Going into the summer I was trying to focus on me and being the best I can be, and come into the camp the best I can be. Once that happens you start trying to fill a role and try to make this team as good as it can be."
Eberle tallied 59 points, including 25 goals, in his first season with the Islanders after he was acquired via trade last June. But after his team's disappointing season led to changes in the front office and coaching staff, Eberle said he welcomes another opportunity to prove himself.
"I think there's going to be some competition in camp and that always makes your team better, and myself included," he said. "You want to be a part of that. You want to be able to prove yourself."
Eberle played the first seven seasons of his career with Edmonton before he was traded to the Islanders.
