The Pittsburgh Penguins and Sergei Gonchar have opened up discussions on a new contract.

The defenceman's agent JP Barry met Penguins general manager Ray Shero Tuesday in Calgary.  The two sides began preliminary discussions that focused mainly on term.

The 35-year old Gonchar, who signed a five-year deal with the Penguins coming out of the lockout, is set to become a free agent at the end of the season.

In 31 games played this season, Gonchar has recorded seven goals and 19 assists.
