Background and Age

Taylor Strba Hall was born on November 14, 1991 in Calgary, Canada. He was born as the child of Steve Hall and Kim Strba. His father was a former Canadian Football League player for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Toronto Argonauts and Ottawa Rough Riders in the mid-1980s, after which he was a member of the Canadian national bobsleigh group. His mom acquainted him with hockey at five years old while his father kept up a lawn arena each winter which Hall and his companions trained on determinedly. His family moved to Kingston, Ontario, in 2005, where he went to high school at Frontenac Secondary School.

Hall started playing minor hockey in Calgary, Alberta. At the point when he was 13, his family moved to Kingston, Ontario, where he kept on playing. Taylor caught a Bantam AAA Calgary city championship with the North East Canucks during the 2004–05 season. In 2005–06 and 2006–07 Hall played Bantam and Minor hockey for the Greater Kingston Predators of the ODMHA group. Hall was named to the ODMHA Midget AAA All-Star group. After the season, Hall was the second overall decision in the 2007 Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Priority Selection by the Windsor Spitfires. Ryan O'Reilly was chosen first overall in front of Hall by the Erie Otters.

Career and Net Worth

Not long after being chosen first overall by the Edmonton Oilers in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, Hall signed his first professional contract. The contract pays Hall the starting level limit of $900,000 with the possibility of an extra $2.85 million in performance rewards. This is the highest rookie contract in Oilers history. Hall made his NHL debut on October 7, 2010, as the Oilers vanquished one of their most despised adversaries, the Calgary Flames at Rexall Place. Hall's first NHL point, an assist, came in his subsequent game, against the Florida Panthers on October 10, 2010.

Following quite a while of trade expectations, the New Jersey Devils dealt Taylor Hall in December 2019. The 2018 Hart Trophy victor and Blake Speers were sent to the Arizona Coyotes in return for Arizona's first-round pick in 2020, Arizona's third-round choice in 2021, along with prospects Kevin Bahl, Nick Merkley, and Nate Schnarr.
