Hall received a five-minute major and game misconduct for kneeing Clutterbuck at 17:27 of the third period of the Wild's 3-1 victory Thursday night. Hall subsequently had a hearing with the National Hockey League Department of Player Safety on Friday.
As a result of the suspension, Hall will forfeit US$9,729.72 in salary. He will miss Edmonton's games Saturday against Phoenix and Monday night against the Chicago Blackhawks.
Taylor will be eligible to return to Edmonton's lineup Thursday when the Oilers face the Dallas Stars.
We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
