Hall is travelling on the Devils’ three-game road-trip, but he will sit out of the first game on Tuesday. It will be the eighth consecutive game that Hall has missed, but his return could come as early as Thursday.
Hall will miss 3-4 weeks after undergoing arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn meniscus.
Hall missed Tuesday’s game in Dallas and will miss 3-4 weeks because of a meniscus tear in his left knee. Hall has registered 12 points (5G / 7A) in 14 games this season and this loss will hurt the Devils for at least the next three weeks. With Hall out, expect Beau Bennett and Pavel Zacha to play bigger roles.
There’s no word on when Hall suffered the injury or how serious the lower-body ailment is, but it will keep him out of the lineup vs. Dallas. Hall has had a strong start to his Devils’ career, picking up 12 points (5G / 7A) in 14 games, so his absence will be huge for New Jersey.
The Devils have acquired Taylor Hall from the Oilers for Adam Larsson.
Hall spent the first six years of his NHL career in Edmonton after they selected him 1st overall in the 2010 NHL Draft. Hall is coming off of a 26-goal, 39-assist (65 points) season and has a career-high of 80 points (2013-14). The 24-year-old is one of the best young wingers in the NHL and should provide the Devils with a huge boost up front. He will be reunited with his former junior teammate Adam Henrique.
Hall was listed as a game-time decision because of an illness, but whatever was bothering him this morning didn’t keep him out of tonight’s game. Rob Klinkhammer continues to sit with Hall now playing.
Hall (illness) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.
Hall was not on the ice for the Oilers’ morning skate and his status for tonight’s game is in question. Hall is battling an illness, which could force him out of action. If he can’t play, expected Rob Klinkhammer to draw into the lineup and for Lauri Korpikoski to move up into the top six.
Hall (ankle) returned to practice on Monday; no timetable for his return.
Hall skated in a full team session for the first time since early February. Hall was unable to provide a timeline for his return, but he said he is feeling better. He is going to continue to skate and see how his ankle responds before his return is imminent.
Hall (lower-body) has returned to Edmonton for further testing.
Hall has missed the last two games and his return to Edmonton on Sunday suggests that he will miss both Monday and Tuesday’s games on the East Coast. With the Oilers season in the dumps, they will not rush their star winger back into the lineup for no reason.
Hall (lower-body) is not on the ice for the morning skate.
Hall was listed as doubtful so it is not very surprising that Hall is not on the ice for the morning skate. It looks like he will miss his second straight game and fifth of the last six. Teddy Purcell will skate on the Oilers top-line with Hall out.
Hall missed Wednesday’s game against Pittsburgh with a lower-body injury that he re-aggregated on Monday in San Jose. He was reportedly receiving treatment while his teammates practiced this afternoon, so there is no word on whether he will be available on Saturday.
