Along with recording an assist on Steven Santini‘s goal in the final minute of the second period to give the Devils a 2-1 lead, Hall also found himself in an altercation with Oilers forward Zach Kassian early in the third period.
Just after a neutral zone faceoff, Hall hit Kassian with a pretty nasty elbow that dropped the Oilers forward to the ice. That resulted Kassian eventually chasing Hall down and trying to confront him.
Have a look.
Hall ended up getting a double-minor for high-sticking while Kassian earned a roughing minor. After the game Oilers coach Todd McLellan didn’t seem thrilled with Hall’s actions and said he did not think it was a clean play “by any means,” and then praised Kassian for sticking up for himself.
After being picked N0. 1 overall in 2010, Hall spent six years with the Oilers, scoring 132 goals and adding 196 assists in 381 games. He was traded to New Jersey over the summer for defenseman Adam Larsson.
