Hall was the first overall pick in the 2010 draft and has since become a key fixture on the team's youthful top line alongside fellow first overall pick Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle. Hall finished with 27 goals and 26 assists in 61 games before his season was cut short by a shoulder injury.

Those numbers were slightly up from his rookie year when he had 22 goals and 20 assists in 65 games in another injury-shortened season.
