Hall eager to hit the ice

Taylor Hall has been riddled with injuries since he jumped into the NHL and the Edmonton Sun is reporting the Oilers' young star is feeling in fine form after months of shoulder rehab.

Hall had season-ending shoulder surgery this year and is hoping the injury will be non-existent as he returns to on-ice practices in his home in Kingston, Ontario.

"It's held up fine so I'm pretty excited about that," he told the Sun. "It's time to start being a hockey player again."

Hall, 20, played in just 61 games with the Oilers last season, registering 27 goals and 26 assists for 53 points.

"The surgery was tough," he said. "They didn't just do it arthroscopically, they cut me open and moved the bone around. I have a three-inch scar on my shoulder.

"It was a little different for me, being on all the pain killers afterward, not being able to do much. I had to sleep on a La-Z-Boy for the first week. It was a tough stretch. I had to fly my mom in to take care of me and make me food and everything.

"But now it feels like I have a brand new shoulder. It's exciting for me because I haven't really had that in the last two years."
