The Edmonton Oilers have reached a verbal agreement with former Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov on a one-year deal, the team announced Friday night.

The Oilers agreement with Bryzgalov comes on the heels of a trade with the Flames, in which defenceman Ladislav Smid and goaltending prospect Olivier Roy were sent to Calgary in exchange for centre Roman Horak and goaltending prospect Laurent Brossoit.

The Flyers used a compliance buyout on Bryzgalov just two years into the nine-year, $51-million deal he signed as a free agent in 2011. With no interest coming from the NHL, Bryzgalov had a short stint with the Las Vegas Wranglers of the ECHL last month.
