Blackhawks Receive Big Boost Before Maple Leafs Game

According to Ben Pope, Chicago Blackhawks forward Taylor Hall plans to play on Monday night (Oct. 16) against the Toronto Maple Leafs. The skilled winger was injured in his return to Boston and was initially deemed as week-to-week. 

Per Pope, Hall noted that his shoulder still does not feel great but is also good enough to return to action. With Hall entering the lineup again, he only missed one game, which is far shorter than what the team initially planned. 

This is great news for the Blackhawks, as Hall is one of their top forwards. With that, he will give Connor Bedard another strong weapon to work with on the first line and power play. Thus, this return is important in more ways than one.

Hall got his season off to a solid start, and now it is going to be a lot of fun to see how he performs with the Blackhawks from here.
