There is no doubt Taylor Hall is deserving of being selected to attend the 2016 All-Star Weekend at the end of the month in Nashville.
“I’m excited,” said Hall. “It’s an honour. It’s something I’m very proud of. It’s just going to be really fun to be included in a group of guys like that. It’s been a pretty good first half with some help from some really good linemates and some coaching that I’ve had this season. It’s been a lot of fun.”
Hall leads the Oilers in points (41), goals (16) and assists (25) halfway through the season. His linemate, Leon Draisaitl, has seen just how effective Hall can be when he is at the top of his game.
“He’s one of the best wingers in the world right now and there’s no one who deserves it more than him,” Draisailt said of Hall’s selection.
