The superstar could return on Sunday
Taylor Hall left the game against St. Louis tonight in the third period and did not return. The Oilers Twitter account annouced it:

The Sportsnet broadcast crew called it a "lower body injury". Hall was involved in a slight collision behind the net and appeared to turn awkwardly on his knee. Hall also appeared to lose an edge in the second period on the half-wall and extend his leg awkwardly.

This all came after Hall went off of the ice in the second period after blocking a shot with his upper arm, or shoulder.
Hall has already missed 38 games in his career due to injury and just returned from a two-game suspension for his hit on Cal Clutterbuck last week.
The injury would be his third significant injury in his young three-year career and represents a significant blow to the Oilers' who are in the midst of a nine-game road trip.
Ralph Krueger updated the media in the post-game:
"There's a good chance he'll be back in the lineup (on Sunday). We'll see how the next 48 hours go." - Krueger on Hall— Edmonton Oilers (@EdmontonOilers) March 2, 2013
