Taylor Hall will have nightmares about Pekka Rinne after the Oilers’ 2-0 loss to the Predators on Saturday night.
Hall fired nine shots on goal, but none of them got past Rinne. He also had two hits in 24:18. After an injury-shortened 2014-15, performances like this — even without a goal — are great signs. The goals will come. Connor McDavid had two shots in 18:39. Oct 10 - 9:58 PM

Taylor Hall has been taken off the line with Connor McDavid.

Both players like to handle the puck so while they will play together on the power play, the duo were split up on Friday in practice as Hall was on the left side of Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Teddy Purcell. Look for Hall to have a big season this year if he can remain healthy, which has been a problem in the past.

Taylor Hall kicked the party off just 89 seconds in, but the Oilers would go on to fall to the Canucks 5-2 on Thursday night.

Hall is still, somehow, only turning 24-years-old in November and just one season removed from his career best of 27 goals and 80 points. So it'll be interesting to see how much more time he sees with Connor McDavid, who centered his line tonight. Either way, Hall future continues to look bright.

Taylor Hall had eight stitches as a result of a gash over his right eye that he sustained during Monday's preseason game.

Hall still took part in Tuesday's practice. This is just an FYI in case you were concerned by the fact that Hall left Monday's contest.

Taylor Hall feels re-energized going into the upcoming season.

"It has been a tough five years but there's something about the off-season that kind of lets you rewind and get focused again for the (upcoming) season," said Hall. "The changes that have been made are exciting. With Connor [McDavid] coming in, I feel like it's almost like my first year again." Hall took to the ice with McDavid for the first time on Monday at BioSteel's hockey camp in Toronto. He was impressed with McDavid's speed saying, "He seems to glide faster than most guys skate at full speed." The duo are expected to be linemates this year and if Hall can stay healthy then it could easily be a career year for him offensively.

Taylor Hall will enter the off-season with new-found confidence after helping Canada win a gold medal at the World Hockey Championship.

"To end the season like that and to go into the summer feeling good not only about yourself, but what you can bring to a team, is a really good feeling," said Hall. He has played on a losing Edmonton Oilers team for the past five seasons, so getting a tournament victory has rejuvenated him. Hall was named a All-Star at the Worlds and he registered 12 points, including seven goals, in 10 games. He is also excited to continue playing for coach Todd McLellan, who was hired by the Oilers shortly after he was the bench boss for Canada at the World Championship.

Taylor Hall helped Canada beat the Czech Republic 2-0 in the 2015 World Championships semifinal on Saturday.

He finished a nice play assisted by Jordan Eberle and Sidney Crosby, a goal which stood as the game-winner. Hall has to hope these kind of results will become more common for his Edmonton Oilers.

Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle are enjoying working with coach Todd McLellan during the 2015 World Championships.

All three are members of Team Canada. "He's been great," said Hall. "He pushed all the right buttons. ... We have a lot of respect for him and I think that’s really shining through." McLellan mutually agreed to part ways with the Sharks after the 2014-15 campaign and is now regarded as a candidate to take over as Edmonton's bench boss. If that happens he'll already have some experience working with Hall and Eberle.

Taylor Hall scored a hat trick in Team Canada's 10-0 win over Germany at the World Hockey Championships on Sunday.

Canada dominated this game from beginning to end. After a difficult year in Edmonton, it's nice to see Hall healthy and playing well again. Cody Eakin (twice), Aaron Ekblad, Claude Giroux, Tyler Ennis, Sidney Crosby and Matt Duchene also found the back of the net for Canada.
May 3 - 1:13 PM

Taylor Hall is upbeat about the Edmonton Oilers' recent changes.

"The past couple summers it's taken me to July or August to really get the optimism going. After a couple tough seasons, that's usually what it takes," said Hall. "But I feel that now. I'm excited. And it's such a nice feeling." Between the Oilers winning the draft lottery and with it first dibs at Connor McDavid, Bob Nicholson being named the team's CEO, and Peter Chiarelli taking over as the president and general manager, there are plenty of reasons for the Oilers to be upbeat. It's still far too early to say if they're likely to end their playoff drought next season, but there's certainly been a lot of positive moves for them lately.

Taylor Hall is serving as a center while Ryan Nugent-Hopkins deals with a lower-body injury.

Hall played up the middle on a line with Benoit Pouliot and Jordan Eberle on Saturday and it looks like he'll be back in that role on Tuesday. "I enjoyed it last game, it would have been nice to get some production," Hall said. "But I felt more comfortable there then I had in the past when they played me there. I just tried to just play. I've played shifts during games at center and I just tried to treat it like that. I thought I did OK, but I need to keep improving there for sure." Hall has 13 goals and 36 points in 50 contests in 2014-15.
Apr 7 - 9:31 AM

Taylor Hall registered an assist in an 8-2 loss to Los Angeles on Thursday.

Hall has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last eight games. He has 13 goals and 36 points in 49 contests in 2014-15. It's been a disappointing campaign for him, but he should bounce back in 2015-16 if he can stay healthy.
Apr 3 - 10:49 AM

Taylor Hall has played well on the third line since returning a week ago.

There is no doubt that Hall is the Oilers best player but he has certainly fit in nicely alongside Andrew Miller and Anton Lander to give the Oilers another line that opponents have to worry about. Hall has had a tough season as he was expected to be a top-ten scorer in the NHL but do not forget about him next season as he can certainly score. Hall has 12 goals and 34 points in 46 games this season after an 80 point season in 75 games last year.

After the Avalanche tied the game 3-3, Derek Roy scored the Oilers' winning goal at 10:42 of the third period. It was Roy's 11th goal of the season.
