A newer tradition that has been added to the NHL All-Star Game in recent years is having the players walk the red carpet prior to arrival at the rink for the NHL Skills Competition. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins did it last year in Columbus and Jordan Eberle in 2012 in Ottawa. This time it was Taylor Hall's turn.
“I think it’s a really good experience. Being able to walk the red carpet isn’t something you get to do every day. Trying to soak it all in and have fun,” Hall began, adding that he's really enjoyed his time so far in the Music City.
“Nashville’s a great city. The weather’s been great. A lot of fan support and being able to do stuff like this is pretty cool,” he continued. “Having fun with it.”
Hall's mom, aunt and cousin have all joined him here in Nashville. The Oilers winger added that he's glad he's been able to share this experience with them.
“That’s one of the best thing is having family here and having them experience it.”
