Taylor Hall will enter the off-season with new-found confidence after helping Canada win a gold medal at the World Hockey Championship.
"To end the season like that and to go into the summer feeling good not only about yourself, but what you can bring to a team, is a really good feeling," said Hall. He has played on a losing Edmonton Oilers team for the past five seasons, so getting a tournament victory has rejuvenated him. Hall was named a All-Star at the Worlds and he registered 12 points, including seven goals, in 10 games. He is also excited to continue playing for coach Todd McLellan, who was hired by the Oilers shortly after he was the bench boss for Canada at the World Championship.
