Oilers agree to sign goalie Bryzgalov

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) - The Edmonton Oilers say they have a verbal agreement in place to sign goalie Ilya Bryzgalov to a one-year contract.

Bryzgalov's deal was contingent on the completion of trade with the Calgary Flames that cleared defenseman Ladislav Smid's $3.5 million cap hit off the books.

The Philadelphia Flyers bought out of the final seven years of Bryzgalov's $51 million, nine-year contract during the offseason and the 33-year-old Russian goalie attended training camp with the ECHL's Las Vegas Wranglers on a tryout.

Bryzgalov was 19-17-3 with a 2.79 goals-against average last season for the Flyers. In 425 games in 12 NHL seasons with Anaheim, Phoenix and Philadelphia, he is 208-149-45 with a 2.55 GAA and 30 shutouts.

To set up the signing, the Oilers sent Smid and goalie prospect Olivier Roy to the Flames for center Roman Horak and goalie prospect Laurent Brossoit.

Smid, from the Czech Republic, had a goal and an assist in 17 games this season for the Oilers. He has 11 goals and 54 assists in 474 NHL games, all with the Oilers.

Horak, also from the Czech Republic, was scoreless in one game this season for Calgary. He has five goals and 13 assists in 82 NHL games, all with the Flames.

The Oilers are 4-11-2.
