Oilers' Hall doesn't return after injuring left knee

OTTAWA -- Edmonton Oilers left wing Taylor Hall left his team's game Saturday against the Ottawa Senators in the second period with an injury to his left knee and did not return.

Hall was called for slashing after he was hit hard by Senators defenseman Eric Gryba at 11:04 of the period. He came out of the penalty box and stayed on the ice briefly before going to the dressing room with 6:42 left in the period.

The Canadian Press reported that Hall left following the game with his knee in a brace but without using use of crutches.

"I know it's his knee," coach Dallas Eakins said after the Oilers' 3-1 victory. "I don't know the severity of it. Our doctors will look at it and let us know. When a guy doesn't come back in the game, usually it's something that's going to be more than a day or two. But I have no idea right now."

Hall, the first pick of the 2010 NHL Draft, has three goals and five assists in nine games.

Quote of the Day

It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
