Taylor Hall is expected to be back in Edmonton’s lineup Thursday when the Oilers take on the Coyotes in Glendale. The 20-year-old forward hasn’t played since injuring his shoulder Nov. 26 in Colorado.

“(Shoulder) feels strong. Seven games has felt like an eternity. I want to get back out there,” Hall said today via the team’s Twitter feed.

Hall (7G, 11A) still has to pass a fitness test tomorrow, but that doesn’t sound like it’ll be a problem. The Oilers are 2-4-1 in the past seven games without the 2010 first overall pick, so this is welcome news.
