The Edmonton Oilers and veteran forward Ryan Smyth are discussing a contract extension.

Smyth is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. He is playing out the final season of a five-year, $31.25 million contract that he originally signed with the Colorado Avalanche prior to the 2007-08 season.

The 36-year-old rejoined the Oilers this season after being traded from the Los Angeles Kings last summer. Smyth was dealt from Edmonton to the New York Islanders at the trade deadline in 2007. He has 17 goals and 22 assists in 60 games for the Oilers this season.
