Edmonton Locks in Future Star

Taylor Hall recently signed with the Edmonton Oilers, ensuring he will play in NHL training camp this season.  He should be the number one pick or close to it in any Keeper league at this point.

Although scouts claim he will not be a generational player like Steven Stamkos or John Tavares, the 18-year-old should prove himself to be an adequate scorer at the NHL level.  His skill-set, size and pure dominance at the Junior level provide enough pedigree for us to give you the endorsement.

Look for a Dany Heatley type impact as his career progresses and 50-60 points as a main candidate for the Calder Trophy.
