Video: Taylor Hall takes a huge hit, unleashes a big slash

Apr 11, 2013, 1:50 AM EDT

There aren’t many No.1 overall picks who boast tempers like Taylor Hall has shown. After Wednesday, that volatile streak might just earn him another suspension.

Hall’s eventful evening really kicked off in the first period of tonight’s eventual 3-1 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes, as Martin Hanzal delivered this huge hit on him:

There’s a good chance that Hall, 21, was steaming mad from that blow all evening long. That anger might cost him after this slash on Zbynek Michalek, though (via SB Nation):

Hall already received a two-game suspension earlier this season for his questionable hit on Cal Clutterbuck.

That isn’t the only time a possible lack of control cost Hall, either, as his rookie season was cut short due to an injury he suffered during an ill-advised hit.

It’s the Oilers choice to discuss these incidents (or not) with Hall, but it wouldn’t be surprising if the league shared their own feelings about that slash in the next day or two.
