Taylor Hall shows up in your arena, and bombards it until there's nothing left.

We all know that The Kingston Cannonball is good at creating his own offense and generating shots, but how does he compare to other NHL players at the same age?

Below is a table that shows games played, shots and shots per game data for all forwards since 1967-68** in their first three seasons who were also under the age of 21, minimum of 150 games played*.

**The NHL did not start recording player shots data until 1967-68

Hall is as close to Lemieux as Bergeron is to Hall. He's as close to Gretzky as Seguin is to Hall. Obviously that's somewhat tongue-in-cheek, but Hall's ability to generate offense is amazing and at this stage of his career he's among the best we've ever seen at doing so.
