Coyotes Acquire Hall from Devils

Coyotes Acquire Hall from Devils

"Taylor Hall is one of the elite talents in the game today; a Hart Trophy victor, a high-end playmaker and one of the NHL's most talented forwards", Arizona general manager John Chayka said in a statement.

The Arizona Coyotes have acquired Taylor Hall from the New Jersey Devils for Nick Merkley, Nate Schnarr, Kevin Bahl, a 2020 first-round pick and a conditional 2021 third-round pick.

The first-round pick heading to New Jersey in the trade will be top-three protected.

Dreger adds that Hall will likely test the free agent market.

Hall has 25 points in 30 games for the lowly Devils, who came into the season with their eyes on an accelerated turnaround after acquiring 2018-19 KHL scoring leader Nikita Gusev, former Norris Trophy victor P.K. Subban and first-overall pick Jack Hughes. The conditions on the 2021 pick are as follows: the third-round pick in 2021 becomes a second-round selection if either Arizona wins a Stanley Cup playoff round or Hall re-signs in Arizona. He was limited to 33 games last season due to a knee injury, posting 11 goals and 37 points.

The Coyotes haven't made the playoffs since 2012. The Coyotes are atop the Pacific Division at 19-12-4 but are only 23rd in the National Hockey League in team shooting percentage (8.5) and 24th in offense (2.63). He put up 93 points in 76 games during his MVP season.

Additionally, the Devils have reportedly retained 50% of Hall's cap hit.

Selected with the No. 1 pick of the 2010 NHL Draft by the Edmonton Oilers, Hall had 328 points (132 goals, 196 assists) in 381 games in six seasons with the Oilers but never reached the postseason with them.
