Smyth, who will turn 36 on Feb. 21, is currently in the final year of his contract and earns a $6.25 million cap hit.
The Blueshirts would have to clear space in order to acquire the veteran forward and potentially get a defenseman at the deadline.
It remains to be seen if the longstanding relationship with Sather will be enough for Smyth to leave Edmonton. The Detroit Red Wings, San Jose Sharks and Boston Bruins are also rumored to be interested in the Oilers’ winger.
In 52 games with the Oilers this season, Smyth has collected 16 goals and 20 assists for 36 points.
