NHL Signing: Edmonton Oilers, Taylor Hall Agree On Seven-Year Contract Extension
Edmonton Oilers general manager Steve Tambellini announced Wednesday that the organization has agreed to terms with forward Taylor Hall on a new seven-year contract extension.
The deal, according to Bob McKenzie of TSN, will pay Hall $6 million per year.
Hall, chosen first overall by the Oilers in the 2010 NHL Draft, has tallied 49 goals and 95 points in 126 career NHL games spanning two seasons. There’s a good chance Hall could be part of a pretty productive and entertaining top line for the foreseeable future in Edmonton alongside 2011 first-overall pick Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and 2012 No. 1 overall choice Nail Yakupov.
Despite missing 21 games last season after shoulder surgery, Hall still finished tied for fifth in the League with 13 power-play goals. He was second on the team with 53 points.
