The 22-year-old Taylor Hall is coming off his best season offensively, with 80 points (27-53-80). Hall says his main focus going into camp this year is his defensive play. Should he become even more of a complete player, that’s scary for opponents.
When asked if he is ahead of where he was defensively to start the season last year, Hall didn’t know. However, he says it is on his radar to improve in that category.
“I haven’t played any games yet so I think time will tell, but that’s definitely been a bigger focus of mine this year coming into camp,” he said. “Maybe in past years I’ve been looking forward to getting points and stuff. I want to round out my game as best I can so that from the start of the year I don’t have any glaring deficiencies and I’m helping out my team the best I can.”
