Ryan Smyth Heading to Calgary Pending Ownership Approval

According to TSN's Gord Miller, a trade has been worked out that would see the Los Angeles Kings send left wing Ryan Smyth to the Calgary Flames for a late round pick. No deal has been confirmed and there's no guarantee the trade will go through, as the Flames ownership has delayed the transaction in order to make a final decision. Earlier this week, Smyth requested that the Kings trade him back to the Edmonton Oilers, where he spent the majority of his career. He has one more year on his current contract which has a salary cap hit of $6.25 million. I'll have more on this if the trade goes through.


Ryan Smyth will not be going to the Calgary Flames. There is now a tentative deal in place for the Los Angeles Kings to trade Smyth to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for Gilbert Brule and a draft pick.


Smyth's return to Edmonton is being held up because of the health of Gilbert Brule. Sources say the Kings were willing to take on Brule with the intention of buying out the final year of his contract, but the collective bargaining agreement forbids teams from buying out injured players. For now, it's looks like Smyth is staying in Los Angeles unless the two teams can alter the terms of the trade.
