Vernon Fiddler Traded Back To Nashville

Nashville, TN - Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced Saturday that the club has acquired forward Vernon Fiddler from the New Jersey Devils in exchange for a fourth-round selection in the 2017 Entry Draft.

Fiddler, 36 (5/9/80), has appeared in 857 NHL games over parts of 14 seasons with Nashville, Phoenix (Arizona), Dallas and New Jersey. He has recorded 260 points (103g-157a) in his career, including three points (1g-2a) in 39 games with the Devils this season. The Edmonton, Alberta, native earned an assist on a third-period goal on Dec. 3, 2016, against the Predators at Bridgestone Arena.

Originally signed by Nashville in 2002 as an undrafted free agent, Fiddler spent six seasons with the Predators from 2002-09, totaling 93 points (45g-48a) in 305 games. He earned a career-high 32 points (11g-21a) with the Preds in 2007-08.

Taylor Hall Returns To Edmonton Tonight

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,

Taylor Hall took the first step to cutting the cord with his old Edmonton Oilers team last week in New Jersey when he played against buddies Connor McDavid, Jordan Eberle and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.

But Hall will officially sever it Thursday night when he’ll be the enemy against the Oilers in the town where he got Kevin Lowe’s old No. 4 out of mothballs and on his back, where he went from teenager to man, where he got the letter A on his jersey.

“I honestly don’t know what I’ll feel,” said Hall, who played 381 games for the Oilers but traded in June 29 for defenceman Adam Larsson. “I think I’ll get a good applause … in the past when guys have come back and played they’ve always been gracious to them. I don’t think it’ll be any different. That’s the kind of people that are here in Edmonton. I really enjoyed my time here and the way they treated me.”

Taylor Hall On Playing Against The Edmonton Oilers Tonight

from Dan Rosen of NHL.com,

"It's going to be weird, but to be honest, it was really nice to have a game [Friday] against a different team," Hall said. "I guess now I start thinking about it. I'm just trying to stay focused on helping my team and trying to get two points for us. It's definitely going to be weird and I'm not going to downplay that. It's going to be a super strange atmosphere for me, but the quicker I put that aside and just focus on playing hockey and focus on my contribution to the team, I think that's the best way to go."

Hall said in November that his motivation after the trade was to prove the Oilers wrong for getting rid of him. He's hit or miss on if he has done that through almost half of his first season in New Jersey.

He has nine goals and 16 assists (25 points) in 30 games, and the Devils are 16-17-7, six points out of a Stanley Cup Playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The Oilers, who haven't made the playoffs since 2006, are 20-13-7, third in the Pacific Division.

"I wanted to prove them wrong in more of a team sense than anything, more of, 'How much can I do to help my team?'" Hall said. "I'm obviously disappointed in that factor. We're one game below .500. We're not in a playoff spot and Edmonton is. I don't think that falls all on my shoulders, but certainly I think I have another level to get to and I think I will."
