Taylor Hall to miss 3-4 weeks following knee surgery


Some frustrating news for the New Jersey Devils — winger Taylor Hall will miss 3-4 weeks after having arthroscopic surgery on his left knee.

The club announced today that Hall has been placed on injured reserve. The 25-year-old speedster has five goals in 14 games. He missed last night’s game in Dallas, where the surprising Devils extended their win streak to five.

The first overall draft pick in 2010, Hall has a long history of injuries, but he did play all 82 games for the Oilers last season, before he was traded to New Jersey on June 29.

The Devils have three games left on their road trip, all in California against the Ducks, Kings, and Sharks.
