WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets have opened talks on a new contract with pending restricted free agent Zach Bogosian.

Agent Bob Murray, who represents Bogosian, confirmed via e-mail on Friday morning that he had a “preliminary discussion" with the Jets on Thursday but wouldn't discuss any further details.

During the last negotiation in 2011 — which ended in the two-year bridge contract for $5 million that is about to expire — Murray made it clear that he doesn’t plan to negotiate through the media and he’s sticking to that mantra this time around.

Bogosian, who is eligible for salary arbitration, is one of nine restricted free agents on the Jets roster and figures to be in line from a significant raise over the $3 million he made last season.
