Report: Oilers close to re-signing Smid

The SportsXchange

The Edmonton Oilers are close to signing defenseman Ladislav Smid to a four-year contract that would be worth about $16 million, the Edmonton Sun reported.

Smid, 27, has one goal and three assists in 34 games for the Oilers this season. But he is considered a solid defensive player.

He will become an unrestricted free agent this summer if he is not re-signed by the Oilers.
