After playing in all 82 games for the Oilers last season, one would think that Taylor Hall would be starting to shuffle off that stigma that he's injury prone, but the 2015 member of my Injury Prone List is back on the shelf, this time with a knee injury. The injury is being described as a torn meniscus and it is something that requires surgery, which he underwent on Wednesday and the New Jersey Devils are now expecting him to be out of the lineup for the next 3-to-4 weeks.
Hall has gotten off to a good start with his new club, picking up 5 goals and 12 points in his first 14 games, but this will certainly put a damper on his season moving forward.
For John S., this is his 3rd round pick being shelved for a little while and his top 10 team is certainly going to hurt for the short-term. His team is off to a mediocre start to the week, starting with 5 points in the first couple nights of action, but is 15 points out of the money and the gap is expected to grow without Hall.
