Taylor Hall, Oilers Agree On 7-Year Contract Extension

While the long-term fiscal outlook of the NHL is still unclear as the league undergoes yet another round of extremely contentious CBA negotiations, that hasn't stopped the Edmonton Oilers from agreeing to a long-term extension with one of their young building blocks:

Hall, a 20-year old taken No. 1 overall in 2010, was entering the final year of his entry-level deal and would have been a restricted free agent at the end of the 2012-2013 season. The 6'1 195 left wing had 27 goals and 26 assists last season.

With Hall now under contract for most of the decade, the Oilers are expected to try to lock up right wing Jordan Eberle to a contract extension as well.
