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.”
