Drafted first overall by the Edmonton Oilers in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, Taylor Hall quickly made an impact, becoming a central figure in the Oilers’ young core. Despite his individual successes and point production in Edmonton, the team struggled to make a significant playoff run during his tenure there.
In 2016, in a move that surprised many, Hall was traded to the New Jersey Devils. It was with the Devils that he had his most successful individual season to date. In the 2017-2018 season, Hall recorded 93 points and was awarded the Hart Memorial Trophy as the NHL’s most valuable player, leading the Devils to a playoff berth.
Hall’s journey in the NHL has continued with stints with the Arizona Coyotes, Buffalo Sabres, and then the Boston Bruins. Across these teams, he has showcased his ability to adapt and contribute offensively.

In 2015, Kane was traded to the Buffalo Sabres, where he continued to demonstrate his scoring touch. His time with Buffalo allowed him to further establish himself as a top-six forward, often leading the team in goals.
A trade in 2018 saw Kane join the San Jose Sharks. In San Jose, he became a pivotal player, often featuring on the team’s top lines and contributing significantly during their playoff runs. Kane signed as a free agent with the Oilers in 2022 and has spent the last two seasons in Edmonton.
