Video- Hall Hurts Ankle In Fight With Dorsett

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,

Edmonton Oilers’ rookie Taylor Hall said Thursday morning that he had only been in two junior fights in his hockey life and didn’t like his chances with the bigger boys in the NHL, but after one goal and a dazzling rush later, Hall shockingly dropped the mitts with one of the toughest pound-for-pound customers, Derek Dorsett, eight hours later.

Give Hall an A for bravery, but an F for foolishness after he exchanged punches with the Columbus Blue Jackets’ forward, who’s had 14 fights this season. Hall hung in after instigating the scrap in the wake of a hard Dorsett hit along the boards, but fell to the ice, landed awkwardly and injured his left ankle. There was no immediate word on how badly he was hurt but it didn’t look good as he limped to the dressing room.
