DENVER – Edmonton Oilers forward Taylor Hall suffered an injury to his left shoulder in the first period of Saturday night's game against the Colorado Avalanche at the Pepsi Center. He will not return.

Hall was hurt on an unpenalized hit by Avalanche defenseman Ryan Wilson in the corner, and his left arm was limp as he left the ice. Hall managed to return, but he left for good late in the period after taking a cross-check by defenseman Kyle Quincey, who was penalized on the play.

The first overall selection at the 2010 Entry Draft, the 20-year-old winger has 7 goals and 11 assists in 21 games.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
