An unexpected turn of events occurred on September 23rd when Taylor Hall was filmed on the ice.

It appears that Taylor Hall might begin training soon. Despite coach Richardson's claims yesterday that he didn't know when he would return, here he is skating.

His linemates seem to be Ryan Donato and Connor Bedard, so he could make an electric line!
Blackhawks coach Luke Richardson agreed, saying Hall and Bedard could be «very creative and dangerous.»

«(It's) the obvious things, the speed and the dynamic skating off the ice, power-play breakouts, the other team turns the puck over, the D gets caught pinching, and those guys, the green light is going to be flashing for them to take off with the puck,» he said.

«Thinking on the same level is going to be huge for Connor to have a guy to rely on, to talk about how he got to that point in the NHL, being the same No. 1 pick overall, and then competing in the League at a high level and becoming the MVP at one point. It's going to be great to have [Hall] around. Sometimes he'll be with him, and sometimes he may not, but he'll always have him to rely on.»

As a member of the Seattle Kraken for 71 games, Donato scored 14 goals and provided 13 assists for 27 points. A new linemate such as Taylor Hall or Connor Bedard may help revitalize his career since he has struggled to find a place in the NHL.
Of course, Taylor Hall is here to mentor Bedard. Last season, Hall was on target to be a 40-point player, scoring 16 goals and 20 assists for 36 points. In this line with Bedard, he could be a 60-point player again.
All in all, Hall has the potential to push Bedard's production to the next level.
