There was speculation the Edmonton Oilers and goaltender Mike Smith were running into a slight issue over term on a contract extension. Smith wanted more than one season, the Oilers wanted a one-year extension. According to Patrick Johnston of The Province in Vancouver, it sounds like Smith is getting what he wants.
Johnston tweeted Wednesday, after news that defenseman Adam Larsson had reportedly signed a four-year contract with the Seattle Kraken, that Smith and the Oilers were closing in on a multi-year contract. Pierre LeBrun has also reported that there are “positive signs” to Smith returning to Edmonton. No term was mentioned in LeBrun’s tweet.
