Round 1 – 1st overall

Edmonton Oilers – Taylor Hall

6′ 1″, 172 lbs – Left Wing, Windsor (OHL)

This was the logical pick to make for Edmonton, as Hall was the consensus top player in the draft and is one heck of a dynamic scoring winger.

Central scouting had dropped Hall down to #2 in their player rankings in recent weeks, mainly because many feel that in the end Seguin will be the better player of the two. Seguin is the playmaker, while Hall is the finisher.

The Oilers needed a player that can put the puck in the net next season, and Hall will provide that scoring threat they so desperately need.

More to come.
