Taylor Hall out 2-4 weeks with MCL sprain

Edmonton Oilers star forward Taylor Hall will miss two to four weeks of action after spraining his MCL against Vancouver on Saturday night.

Hall injured his leg after crashing violently into the Canucks net early in the second period. He had to be helped off the ice and didn’t return to the game. 

The Oilers announced the injury news on Sunday. 

Hall had been Edmonton’s best player in the early going, leading the team in scoring with six goals and four assists in 11 games. 

Vancouver defeated Edmonton 3-2 Saturday to hand the Oilers back-to-back losses, dropping them to 4-6-1 in the early going.
