Deck The Hall

 

 Jason O. Watson-USA TODAY Sports

Edmonton Oiler fans get an early Christmas gift as Taylor Hall will return to the lineup against the Tampa Bay Lightning tonight.

Hall had 3 goals and 5 assists before being injured.  He will wear a knee brace of the rest of the season but says, “It’s fine. It’s a little clunky but it feels good on my knee.”

Hall was originally scheduled to be out 4 weeks and had this to say on his early return.

I had a feeling I’d be back sooner. I had a goal of 3 weeks when it first happened and I’m back even sooner than that.” At practice yesterday I felt ready to go. I was planning to play Saturday but felt good enough to go today”

Linus Omark will also make his Oiler début this season and understands the need to be defensively responsible.

I need to play my game, be responsible with the puck on defence.”

Will Acton and Ben Eager are expected to be the healthy scratches.

More to come….
