Devils’ Taylor Hall out vs. Canadiens with right knee contusion

Check this out, as Kurtis MacDermid connects knee-on-knee with New Jersey Devils star Taylor Hall, who tried to shake it off, but eventually left the game due to the injury.

New Jersey Devils forward Taylor Hall will not travel with the team for Thursday night’s game against the Montreal Canadiens due to a right knee contusion.

Hall left Tuesday’s win over the Los Angeles Kings in the third period after a knee-on-knee collision with defenceman Kurtis MacDermid. However, the 26-year-old appears to have avoided a major injury, according to Devils head coach John Hynes.

Losing Hall for any period of time would be a blow to the 17-9-4 Devils as he leads the team in scoring through 30 games this season, racking up 31 points including two goals against the Kings before the injury.
