New Additions


Taylor Hall, Edmonton Oilers – Facial Laceration – Day-to-Day

Corey Potter accidentally stepped on Halls face in warm up Tuesday night after Hall slipped on a puck and slid into the corner. Hall received a significant cut from the top of his head, to the tip of his eyebrow that required 30 stitches. Hall wanted to return for the second period but was held out. Fear not, there is no chance he suffered a concussion and should be back in the next game. Chances are he wears a helmet in warm up!
