Hall misses game after injury during warmups

- Associated Press - Tuesday, January 17, 2012

COLUMBUS, OHIO (AP) - Edmonton Oilers left wing Taylor Hall sat out Tuesday's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets after cutting his head when he accidentally made contact with a teammate during pregame warmups.

Team spokesman J.J. Hebert confirmed that Hall "fell and a teammate tried to avoid him and his skate cut him."

Hall did not play in the first period. The team announced in the second period that Hall had suffered a "cut to the head" and would not play in the game.

Hall, who was not wearing a helmet, had blood running down the side of his head while a trainer tried to staunch the flow.

The 20-year-old, the first overall pick in the 2010 draft, has 15 goals and 16 assists in 36 games.
