Pending restricted free-agent forward Timo Meier hasn’t discussed a contract extension with the San Jose Sharks, his agent, Claude Lemieux, told the Mercury News’ Curtis Pashelka.

Lemieux added that he’s “very realistic” about Meier possibly getting traded.

Meier’s current deal carries a $6-million cap hit, and a team would have to give him a $10-million qualifying offer in the offseason to hold onto his negotiating rights, according to CapFriendly.

His qualifying offer might be hard for cap-strapped contending teams to swing, but the 26-year-old is enjoying a dynamite campaign for the floundering Sharks. Meier leads San Jose with 27 goals – 11 clear of Logan Couture, who has the second most – and ranks second on the team with 47 points in 47 games.
