Barons forward Taylor Hall was named the American Hockey League Player of the Week after recording nine points in three Oklahoma City wins last week.
Hall compiled nine points (one goal, eight assists), three in each game. Hall scored the go-ahead goal and tallied two assists to help the Barons rally for a 6-4 win over the Texas Stars mid-week, then recorded three assists in both of OKC’s wins over the division leading Charlotte Checkers last weekend.
Joining the Barons two weeks into the season following rehabilitation from shoulder surgery, Hall has produced 11 points the past four games. In 10 games with Oklahoma City, Hall has scored 15 points.
The No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 NHL Draft, Hall, a 21-year-old winger from Calgary, compiled 95 points in 126 games with the Edmonton Oilers the past two seasons. Still in his entry level contract, Hall is playing with the Barons during the NHL lockout.
