Oilers re-sign Ladislav Smid for 4 years at $3.5M

By , April 1, 2013 8:43 am


First off, I’ve dropped a few April Fool’s jokes today.. so I will preface this by saying this is not a joke. Smid has re-signed with the Oilers for 4 years at $3.5M. That is as good as it really was going to get… the Oilers got him for the low-end number that he was reportedly asking for, and some figured he’d get $4m, so good on them for getting it right!

Plante and Chorney sent back to Springfield

From the Oilers site:


General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today the Edmonton Oilers have assigned defencemen Taylor Chorney and Alex Plante to Springfield of the American Hockey League.

Chorney was recalled to Edmonton on January 25 and appeared in eight games with no points and a -3 rating.

Plante was recalled on January 31 and played in his first National Hockey League game recording an assist with 12 minutes of ice time. He skated in four games total with one assist and a +1 rating.

That means that both Smid and Staios will play tomorrow night against Phoenix.

Smid Contracted (past tense) H1N1

Tonight Quinn released the news that a player on the Oilers had contracted the H1N1 virus. It was later confirmed on the Oilers website that the player in question is Ladislav Smid who has since recovered from the virus.

According to Pat Quinn, Alberta Health guidelines are to not test for H1N1 unless the person is hospitalized. Quinn also noted that the players are not in the at risk group for serious effects of the virus. “Young people are getting it and there is no way of stopping it, I guess,” Quinn stated. “We want to be able to help them through it. They’re not at the at risk group – they’re at risk to get it, but not at risk for serious illness other than the sweats and the fevers and that sort of thing. So we’re going to stay on top of that and there may be further discussion tomorrow.”


In other sad, somewhat related news.. 13-year old minor hockey leaguer Evan Frustaglio died monday night from the H1N1 virus. Frustaglio was in London, Ontario for a hockey tournament when he complained of a sore throat and cough on Friday night. By Saturday, Frustaglio was experiencing more flu-like symptoms and had even seen a physician the next day who had advised the family to continue taking medication and treat the fever, and the boy would be fine. Within 24 hours later, the boy had passed away from the virus.

Oilers Injury Update

Sheldon Souray and Steve Staios still remain out of the line up. Word is, Souray could miss as much as a month. Of course, Fernando Pisani and Marc Pouliot are also out of the line up.

Gilbert Brule recently went down with the flu (before the last game, against Vancouver). He will likely miss tomorrow’s game but could be back Saturday. Ladislav Smid also has now caught the flu. It is expected that if either player miss Thursday’s game, Steve MacIntyre will get the nod. He was at practice today playing on the blueline. MacIntyre has played both defence and forward in his pre-Oiler career.

You don't want to make him angry...

You don't want to make him angry...

And time to jam up on one of my posts.

So the Edmonton Sun just posted an interview with Smid, and from the sounds of it he was less than pleased with the Heatley trade and how it went down.

There is some pretty telling stuff in there. Continue reading 'Smid talks about near-trade'»
