Hall (lower leg) will not play in Saturday's game against the Sharks, Derek Van Diest of the Edmonton Sun reports.
Hall was able to resume skating with the team at morning skate, but his absence from line rushes means that he will head to the press box for a third straight contest. Still, the Oilers have to be encouraged by Hall's presence on the ice, further affirming that a long-term injury has been avoided. He'll set his sights on a return to action Monday in San Jose.

Hall (lower leg) will travel with the Oilers to Calgary for Saturday's game but remains uncertain to play, Matthew Iwanyk of TSN 1260 reports.
Hall has been sidelined for two games with the injury, but the fact that he's traveling suggests the Oilers continue to few him as day-to-day and aren't fearing a long-term absence. His availability for Saturday's match against the Flames should be decided by the morning of the game.

Hall (lower leg) will not play Thursday against the Sabres, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Hall, who is dealing with a bone bruise, hasn't resumed skating since taking a shot off his leg during Monday's practice. As a result, he'll be sidelined for his second straight contest, with no indication on when he may be able to take to the ice again. The Oilers seem to be considering him day-to-day for the time being, but if he fails to notice much progress in the coming days, team doctors could reassess his status.

Hall tallied a goal, assist and three shots on goal in Friday's 5-2 win over the Blackhawks.
The Oilers finally seem to be breaking out of their funk that lasted through most of November and December, as they've now soundly beaten two quality teams in the Islanders and Blackhawks in January. It's been to the benefit of Hall, who has recorded a point in five of his last six games. Hall has been fortunate to avoid a huge drain to his plus/minus this season (minus-4 over 36 games), and now that the Oilers' offense is starting to click, the goals and assists could begin coming in droves.

Hall picked up an assist and fired off four shots on net in Sunday's surprise win over the Islanders.
Hall has collected helpers in three of his last four games, but the burden of carrying his hapless squad night after night seems to be catching up to him in his fifth NHL season. He's tallied only two goals over his last 18 contests, and his 0.70 points per game represent his lowest scoring average since his rookie year.

Hall potted two goals and added an assist in Sunday's 6-5 loss to the Stars.
Hall had been slumping with just one point in his last eight contests, but broke out with his best effort of the season. The 23-year-old is up to 10 goals and 11 assists through 28 games as his numbers have dipped from his 80 point output from a year ago.

Hall has tallied just one point in the Oilers' last seven games.
Hall hasn't seen his shot attempts take a dramatic dip during the scoring drought, but if he's not finding the back of the net with regularity, the Oilers are in a serious trouble. It shouldn't come as much of a surprise that with Hall slumping, the Oilers haven't mustered more than two goals in any match during that seven-game stretch. The burden of carrying the Oilers for the past five seasons clearly seems to be weighing down Hall, whose name has been starting to show up in trade rumors more frequently of late.
