Edmonton Oilers forward Taylor Hall likes to throw his body around and use his speed as much as just about any talented young forward in the NHL, but it comes with drawbacks. Sometimes his injuries just seem to be a matter of bad luck, though.

Considering Edmonton’s basement placement and the violent look of that collision, it wouldn’t be surprising if Hall finishes another season on the injured list. No word on the severity of the injury just yet, though.
