Hall was held out of practice on Monday and did not take part in this morning's optional skate, but he will play through his minor shoulder pain. He will skate on the top line with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Sam Gagner.
Updating an earlier report. Hall will play tonight vs. Tampa Bay.
17 days after spraining his left knee. It’s well ahead of the four-week prognostication after the second-degree sprain when hit by Eric Gryba. Hall will have to wear a brace on his knee the rest of the season, but that’s a small price to pay to be back, for Thursday’s game on a line with Sam Gagner and Nail Yakupov.
Looks as if Taylor Hall (knee) will return to the Oilers lineup tonight.
Hall missed the last seven games with a knee injury that he suffered on October 19. The Oilers have been struggling - one win in last six games - so Hall will be a welcomed addition to the lineup. He had three goals and five assists with a minus-6 rating in nine games.
Taylor Hall, now skating with a brace on his left knee, will travel with Oilers out east (Nov 5-10). He expects he could be back before end of the four-game trip.
Hall will miss his sixth straight game with the knee injury that he suffered on October 19th vs. Ottawa. Hall has battled injuries throughout his career, but hopefully he can turn the corner to good health following his return from the latest injury. Monitor his status throughout the week.
Oilers GM Craig MacTavish says Taylor Hall is expected to be out four weeks due to his injured left knee.
This is a terrible break for the Oilers who's lineup has been depleted by injuries all month. Coming into the season Hall looked poised for another great season, but concerns about injury always loom near with the 21-year-old. Expect Nail Yakupov to take on an expanded role as he looks to fill in for Hall and get back into coach Dallas Eakins good graces.
Taylor Hall has returned to Edmonton to receive medical examination on his injured left knee.
The Oilers and Hall owners are hoping that an MRI in Edmonton reveals no structural damage to his injured knee. Leaving the team on the road trip isn't exactly a good sign, but we'll have to wait and see what the MRI reveals.
Oilers being very cautious on Taylor Hall's leg injury.Told no decision on whether he will play vs Wild Sunday until tomorrow morning.
The Wild and Oilers play late on Sunday so you may want to cautiously sit Hall unless word on his status comes out before the first games. At the very least, it looks as if Hall will only be day-to-day instead of going on IR.
#Oilers GM Steve Tambellini announces Taylor Hall will require surgery on his left shoulder. Hall (labral shoulder surgery) will not return to the #Oilers lineup this season, according to GM Tambellini
