07:14 AM ET 08.15 | Dan Boyle had been eyeing a return to San Jose for some time, and it seems he may be ready to stay even longer than through is current contract. [Earlier this week, Boyle's agent] confirmed that there have been discussions with the Sharks about a potential contract extension for the veteran defenseman. Boyle has one year remaining on his current deal, paying him $6.67 million in 2013-14. According to Boyle's agent, George Bazos, Boyle has expressed his desire to remain in San Jose and thinks he can be an effective player through the age of 40. That would suggest that Boyle, who turned 37 on July 12, is seeking a two or three-year extension. Bazos didn't rule out that something could get done before the start of the season, but talks have not been extensive to this point.
