Barons' Hall honored for 9-point week
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. ... The American Hockey League announced today that Oklahoma City Barons left wing Taylor Hall has been selected as the CCM/AHL Player of the Week for the period ending Nov. 25, 2012.
Hall notched nine points (one goal, eight assists) and a plus-6 rating in three games last week as the Barons began a seven-game road stretch with three straight victories.
On Wednesday night at Texas, Hall scored the game-winning goal and tallied two assists as the Barons rallied from a 3-1 deficit to defeat the Stars, 6-4. On Saturday in Charlotte, he notched three assists and set up the game-winner as Oklahoma City staged a third-period comeback and defeated the Checkers, 4-2. And in Sunday’s rematch, Hall assisted on the game-winning goal again, highlighting another three-assist performance in the Barons’ 7-2 win over Charlotte.
Hall, who joined the Barons on Oct. 30 after completing his recovery from shoulder surgery, has 11 points in his last four games and shows four goals and 11 assists for 15 points in 10 total games with Oklahoma City this season. The first overall pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, the third-year pro and 21-year-old native of Calgary, Alta., has notched 49 goals and 46 assists for 95 points in 126 National Hockey League games with Edmonton.
In recognition of his achievement, Hall will be presented with an etched crystal award prior to an upcoming Barons home game.
