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.

One of the highlights of his career came later in his tenure with the Tampa Bay Lightning, where he served as the team captain. Under his leadership, the Lightning won the Stanley Cup in 2004. This victory was particularly special as it came towards the end of his career, and the Stanley Cup had eluded him until then.
Andreychuk retired as one of the highest-scoring left-wingers in NHL history, holding the record for most career power-play goals for some time.
