Taylor Hall Leaves Game With A "Lower Body Injury"

New, comment

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.
