Blackhawks Given Bad Injury News for Taylor Hall

Taylor Hall returned to TD Garden on Oct. 11 to play against his former team, the Boston Bruins. However, he left the game early due to an upper-body injury, and Chicago Blackhawks head coach Luke Richardson announced that the winger will be out week-to-week.

Hall notably got an assist on Connor Bedard's first NHL goal before exiting the game against the Bruins. Now, the Blackhawks will be without one of their best offensive weapons, and the Blackhawks have some decisions to make with their top six because of it.

This is a tough blow for Hall, as he is one of the NHL's top bounce-back candidates heading into 2023-24. He has looked solid so far for the Blackhawks, but now his bounce-back push will need to be put on hold due to this injury.

Here's to hoping that all goes swimmingly with his recovery and that he has a strong campaign once he is good to go.
