The Edmonton Oilers wasted no time in making Taylor Hall the first pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. Viewed as the storied franchise's cornerstone, Hall is giving Edmonton fans hope that their once great team will contend for the Stanley Cup sooner rather than later.
Hall's dominance in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) had scouts and general managers drooling for years. During his rookie campaign in 2007-08, he led the Windsor Spitfires in goals (45) and assists (39), earning Rookie of the Year honors for both the OHL and the Canadian Hockey League. Hall led the Spitfires to consecutive Memorial Cups, winning the tournament MVP both times.
What Hall lacks in size, he makes up for in speed and puck handling. Hall had a lot of pressure on him as a 19-year old NHL rookie. However, he handled the it well, scoring 20 goals and notching 22 assists in his freshman campaign with the Oilers.
Taylor Hall had more than 400 total cards produced in his 2010-11 rookie year. This includes over 200 memorabilia cards, more than 150 autographs, almost 300 serial numbered cards and more than 20 rookie cards.
Hall's success in juniors and the resulting expectations meant a ton of autographed material hit the secondary market long before he walked across the draft podium. Canadian collectors and speculators are very savvy when it comes to hockey prospecting and everybody had Hall at the top of their list.
