About Taylor Hall

Taylor Hall (born February 20, 1964 in Regina, Saskatchewan) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey player who spent parts of five seasons in the National Hockey League with the Vancouver Canucks and Boston Bruins. Hall played his junior hockey with the Regina Pats of the Western Hockey League, and was selected 116th overall in the 1982 NHL Entry Draft by the Vancouver Canucks. By the 198384 season he was dominating the WHL and finished the year with 63 goals and 142 points, good for fourth in the league. He also made his NHL debut, appearing in four games for the Canucks and scoring his first NHL goal. Considered one of Vancouver's top young prospects, Hall cracked the Canucks' roster out of training camp for the 198485 campaign and got off to a great start with five points in his first seven games. However, in an October 23, 1984 game against the New York Islanders, Hall crashed heavily into a goalpost and blew out his left knee.
