Taylor Hall injury update

Just when it looked like things were turning around for the Edmonton Oilers, they receive some bad news. Taylor Hall was forced out of Saturday’s contest against the Ottawa Senators with a lower-body injury.

The injury occurred as Hall was skating up the boards with the puck. Ottawa player Eric Gryba bumped into him as he progressed, and the tweak to his leg appeared to happen at that point.

Hall seemed upset with Gryba on the play, but it isn’t really clear why. After taking a slash at the Senator following the hit, Hall was given a penalty. He served it, came back out onto the ice and managed to get a shot off from the slot. In the process of firing the puck, Hall’s leg seemed to buckle, and he was forced to leave the game at that point.

After the contest, head coach Dallas Eakins had a quick but unscientific update on Hall’s condition.

This is concerning news for an Oilers team that seemed to grab some momentum by downing the Senators by a 3-1 final. It was just the squad’s second victory of the season, and Edmonton has had fits trying to put together a game that featured both a strong offensive showing and good goaltending.

They received equal efforts on both sides of the puck against Ottawa, but the price of the victory was seemingly very high.
