Hall doubts free-agent return to Edmonton: ‘I did my time there’

Taylor Hall doesn't see a return to Edmonton in his future.

Traded to the New Jersey Devils earlier this summer, Hall has four years remaining on his current contract, but doesn't see a reunion with the Oilers upon becoming an unrestricted free agent.

At least that was his response when TSN 1260's Jason Gregor asked him in about it Tuesday.

"No, I don’t think I would," Hall said. "Right now, my focus is Jersey and playing my four years there. But I don’t think I would come back."

He added, "I think that I gave it a good run and I don’t have any regrets about what happened. I certainly think that I’m focused on what I can do in Jersey. It’s so far away, but I don’t think - maybe something comes up and I’ll change my mind, but ... I did my time there, and it’s time to move on."

The 24-year-old can become an unrestricted free agent in 2020, and will likely be paid more than his current $6-million salary if he continues to be one of the most productive wingers in the game.
