Taylor Hall injury: Oilers forward cleared to play with AHL's Barons

Bruce Fedyck-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Oilers forward Taylor Hall has recovered enough from his shoulder injury to return to the ice.

Edmonton Oilers forward Taylor Hall has been cleared to play for the Oklahoma City Barons of the AHL. The 21-year-old had been dealing with a shoulder injury, according to TSN. Hall has been out of action since the end of last season, when he missed the final 11 games.

Hall underwent surgery on his shoulder in the spring, and has not seen the ice since that time. He has never played in the AHL before, as he went straight to the NHL club after being drafted No. 1 overall out of Windsor in the OHL. He won't play immediately with the Barons, as he will go through two weeks of conditioning to get back into shape before seeing in-game ice time.

Hall missed games last season with a variety of injuries, including a concussion and getting cut by a skate in pre-game warmups. He still managed to score 27 goals to go along with 26 assists. Hall has 49 goals and 46 assists in his 126-game NHL career.
