Former NHL forward Ryan Smyth said he hasn't been asked but has considered letting Edmonton Oilers prospect Connor McDavid live with his family this season.

"Haven't been contacted at all (about McDavid) … it's all rumors," Smyth told the Edmonton Journal on Monday. "I haven't put my name forward. It's not that I haven't thought about it though."

Smyth, who played for the Oilers for 15 seasons and retired in 2014, lived with Kelly Buchberger and his wife Carla when he started his NHL career in 1995, the Journal said.

"Three or four months I lived with them," Smyth said. "I babysat for them and they fed me."

PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Penguins bolstered their bottom-six forward group Tuesday by signing free agent Eric Fehr and acquiring Nick Bonino from the Vancouver Canucks along with defenseman Adam Clendening and a second-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft for center Brandon Sutter and a 2016 third-round pick.

Fehr received a three-year contract with an average annual value of $2 million.

Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford said he had discussed a possible trade with Vancouver since about a month before the 2015 NHL Draft.

"The two deals went hand-in-hand so we can add more depth," Rutherford said. "We have enough good players now that guys are going to have to compete for those spots [in training camp] and compete for them all year. If a guy falls off, there's a guy waiting to jump right in there.

"I like the fact that we have enough guys that each guy can push each other."

Oilers' Talbot excited for chance to be No. 1 goalie

Edmonton Oilers goaltender Cam Talbot spent the past two seasons with the New York Rangers backing up Henrik Lundqvist, knowing full well starts would probably be few and far between.

But with the Rangers up against the NHL salary cap, Talbot was traded to the Oilers on June 27 for the 57th, 79th and 184th picks at the 2015 NHL Draft. Talbot played more last season after Lundqvist sustained a vascular injury.

"Getting to play behind a guy like [Henrik], you learn a lot and you get to see what it takes to be a No. 1 [goalie] in this League," Talbot said Tuesday at the Oilers Hockey School. "I took away a lot from watching him and being able to work with [Rangers goalie coach] Benoit Allaire in New York.

"It's going to be a great opportunity for me here, to be able to come in and work with a good young group of guys and obviously a group that's headed in the right direction. I'm happy to be a part of it."

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
