Boston Bruins Activate Veteran Forward

The Boston Bruins have been the NHL's best team from the beginning of the regular season, and ahead of their playoff push, which will be expected to end in a Stanley Cup Championship, they've activated a key veteran that could help unlock this offensive lineup even further.

While the team had to place both Nick Foligno and Derek Forbort on LTIR, they have officially activated Taylor Hall, who will slot into the lineup tonight as they take on the New Jersey Devils in a heavyweight clash.

Hall hasn't played in a game for Boston since late February, but in 58 games this year, he's registered 16 goals and 20 assists for 36 points, and will be yet another trusted veteran in this lineup as the Bruins seek to translate the President's Trophy into Stanley Cup success.
