Hall collected two assists, including one on the man advantage, and fired three shots on goal in Sunday's 3-2 victory over San Jose.

EDGE Analysis

Hall is still searching for his first goal of the 2018-19 campaign, but he does have three assists and 12 shots on goal in three games so far. The reigning Hart Memorial winner has posted two of his helpers on the power play and his goal scoring should catch up sooner rather than later.

Hall dished out a power-play assist to go with five shots in Thursday's 6-0 win over the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

Hall has just one point in New Jersey's first two games, but his nine shots in that stretch suggest it's only a matter of time until the reigning MVP breaks out. Deploy him as usual moving forward.

Hall (hand) stated he is 100 percent and back to training for the upcoming season, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite the hand injury, Hall still managed to rack up 93 points last season and walk away with the Hart Trophy. Since joining the Devils, the winger is averaging .99 points per game and should continue to lead the club in scoring next year. Fantasy owners should have little reason to doubt the 25-year-old will once again challenge for 40 goals and 100 points during the 2018-19 campaign.

Hall has been voted the Hart Trophy recipient, awarded for the NHL's Most Valuable Player, for the 2017-18 season, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hall had never sniffed the finalists of this award int he past, previously topping out at 80 points during the 2013-14 season. Although he only finished sixth overall in points, the voters deemed him the most worthy candidate in a slight edge over Nathan MacKinnon. The star forward, still just 26 despite having eight NHL seasons under his belt, will return to New Jersey next season as the franchise takes aim at its first playoff series victory since the Devils lost in the Stanley Cup Finals during the 2011-12 season.

The Devils have disclosed that Hall underwent surgery April 30 to repair torn ligaments in his left hand, but the star winger will be ready for training camp.

EDGE Analysis

Hall, who is a finalist for the Hart Memorial Trophy, played through the injury and wound up with a career-high 93 points (including 37 on the man advantage) through 76 contests, not including two goals and four assists through five games of the 2018 Stanley Cup playoffs. He certainly won't come cheap in fantasy leagues this fall, so draft accordingly.

Hall was named as a finalist for the Hart Memorial Trophy, NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's no surprise that Hall is a serious contender to be the "player judged most valuable to his team." Hall had career bests in goals (39) and points (93), and he solidified himself in the race with a 26-game point streak that spanned form Jan. 2 to March 6 and included 18 goals and 20 helpers. Most importantly, he helped lead the Devils to their first Stanley Cup playoffs since the 2011-12 campaign, and Hall had limited help around him with rookie Nico Hischier's 52 points as the second most on the team. Colorado's Nathan MacKinnon and Los Angeles' Anze Kopitar are the other finalists.

Hall scored a goal on six shots while adding two assists, one on the power play, in Monday's 5-2 win over the Lightning in Game 3.

EDGE Analysis

After the Devils fell behind 1-0 early in the second period, Hall took the game over, scoring an unassisted goal on a failed clearing attempt 12 minutes later, then setting up Will Butcher and Stefan Noesen in the third period to put New Jersey in the lead for good. Hall has five points (two goals, three assists) in three games so far this series, and expect him to come out flying again Wednesday as the team looks to knot things up at two games apiece.

Hall had a goal and a power-play assist in Thursday's 5-2 series-opening loss to the Lightning.

EDGE Analysis

Hall carried over the success of a 93-point regular season into the first game of the playoffs, but his teammates failed to provide much support. The superstar winger almost brought his team back from a 3-0 hole, but Tampa Bay countered New Jersey's pair of unanswered goals with two of its own.

Hall is expected to sit out for rest during Saturday's road game against the Capitals, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Both teams have clinched a playoff berth, so there's no reason for the Devils to press their top forward into the action. Of course, this means that Hall won't have a shot at his first career 40-goal season. Instead, he'll finish with 39 goals, 54 assists and an absurd 37 power-play points over 76 games to make a really strong bid for the Hart Trophy, as awarded to the player most valuable to his team.
