Taylor Hall: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Hall is yet another impressive young gun playing for the Oilers and maybe even the best of them all. Hall plays with Jordan Eberle and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins on one of the best lines in the NHL, a line that one day may be the top one in the league if all three continue to develop at their current paces. The only possible knock on Hall is that he has had some injury concerns over his short career, but did manage to play in 45 of 48 games last season, snagging an impressive 50 points along the way. Bottom line is that he is too good to let slip out of your top 30 players come draft day ... or maybe even top 10. Ninety points is within his reach.
Hall is one of the Oilers' best young players. He has scored 49 goals and added 46 assists in his first two NHL seasons. The only negative that can be attributed to him is that he has not been able to stay healthy in either season. Hall missed 17 games in his rookie campaign with an ankle injury and than missed another 21 games last season with a shoulder injury. The shoulder should be 100 percent by the time camp opens in September. And with the talent around him -- and if he can remain healthy -- a 30+ goal season should easily be within his reach.
Hall, who was selected first overall in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, made an immediate impact for the Oilers in his rookie campaign. In 65 games, he had 22 goals (eight on the power play) and 20 assists. Hall was playing some of the best hockey of his short career before sustaining a high ankle sprain that shelved him for the final six weeks of the regular season. Keep in mind that with all the injuries the Oilers suffered last season, it wasn't like there was a ton of talent surrounding Hall, who could see 30-plus goals in his sophomore campaign.
Hall was the first overall pick in the 2010 NHL entry draft and the Oilers prize after finishing with the worst record in the NHL last season. The question becomes will Hall start the season with Edmonton? The Oilers need any kind of goal scoring they can get and although Hall is sure to go through some rough patches if he starts the season with the big club he seems to have all the poise and maturity to excel immediately.
