No Plan To Send Taylor Hall To Juniors

from Joanne Ireland of the Edmonton Journal,

Four games ago, the Edmonton Oilers’ first-round draft pick was the wunderkind who could do no wrong.

In his NHL regular-season debut, he was creating chances, fuelling hope. Now there are suggestions from the a segment of fans that the 18-year-old may be better served returning to junior hockey with the Windsor Spitfires for another season.

That’s not likely to happen, said Oilers head coach Tom Renney, who figured Hall played his best game on Saturday against the Flames in Calgary.

“He’s going to be here all year unless somebody tells me otherwise,” said Renney. “That’s a conversation you’d have down the road if, in fact, there was something that seems consistent in his game that really prevents him from moving forward. I’m not there.

“I think he’ll just get better (and) that’s an assimilation we’re prepared to work with. And not just with him but others in our lineup in a year where we think we can afford to do that and, quite honestly, we need to.”
