Really gotta tip your cap to Taylor Hall this time of year. The guy puts in the extra effort to show up when it matters most. He wins Hart Trophies and draft lotteries, plain and simple. He ends up getting drafted by Edmonton on a lottery pick and now has won 5 draft lotteries in his 9 seasons in the NHL.
As always, Twitter won the night:
This is absolutely huge for the Devils. Being able to add a player like Hughes or Kakko to an already young, fast lineup can change this teams fortunes in a flash.
Here’s to hoping this is the last time Taylor Hall is put in a position to win a draft lottery.
The most wonderful time of the year starts tonight, check back for playoff updates all postseason long.
