Observations

Click to Expand
June 2021 – In his first pro season, Hall skated in just 13 games for Providence, managing one goal. While he did not receive much playing time, he still managed to earn his entry-level contract with Boston, which he signed this past March. While he now has the ability to play in NHL contests, Hall will likely spend all of the 2021-2022 campaign in Providence, where he will look to continue the positive development he was experiencing during his college career.

February 2021 – Hall elected to forgo his final two years of NCAA eligibility, signing a one-year AHL contract with the Providence Bruins. This does not permit him to play in the NHL this season, but considering he signed for just one year, solid play in the minors will likely earn him an entry-level deal this summer. Chris Mazza
December 2020 – The Ivy League has cancelled all winter sports, leaving Hall and his Yale Bulldogs without a 2020-2021 season. After last year’s breakout campaign, Hall will now face a tough decision on his future. He could always wait out the return of Ivy League hockey, which might not happen until late 2021, or he could decide to turn pro early than he may have anticipated. If he chooses the latter, he should have plenty of options. His combination of size, physicality, and college production would be welcome on many international pro teams, or even with Boston’s own AHL affiliate in Providence. Chris Mazza
June 2020 – After returning from the World Junior Championship Hall continued his sophomore breakout with Yale, finishing the season by tallying 17 goals and 27 points in 28 total games. He led his team in goals, points, points-per-game average and plus-minus, while finishing second in PIM. His exceptional goal-scoring pace understandably dropped, however he made up for it by improving his assists output, and keep his pace at nearly a point-per-game. Assuming the current global health situation does not hinder the return of NCAA hockey, expect Hall to return to Yale this fall and continue his momentum before signing his entry-level contract as early as Spring 2021. Chris Mazza
January 2020 – Hall concluded his stint at the World Junior Championship with one goal in five games for the U.S. team. He played a depth role for the Americans but now returns to Yale where he will look to continue his torrid scoring pace. He leads his college team in scoring with eight goals in just 10 games but has work to do in the playmaking department, managing just one assist on the season. If he can keep up his current offensive pace, Hall could be a candidate to sign his entry-level contract with Boston this offseason and take his talents to the AHL for further development. Chris Mazza

March 2019 – Hall wrapped up his freshman season with 11 points through 24 games, while managing 46 shots on goal. As an 18 year old playing for a mid-level college team, this should be considered a successful first season. With virtually no power-play production, Hall should see his role increase next year as Yale looks to break through as a top-tier collegiate team. Chris Mazza

November 2018 – Selected in the fourth round by the Bruins last June, Hall offers speed, size, good hands, and a relentless forecheck. While he never managed to hit the point-per-game mark during his two seasons in the USHL, he has gotten off to a great start in his NCAA career playing for the Yale Bulldogs with three points in the team’s first three games. He is still a long way from being fantasy relevant, but Hall will be a player to monitor as his collegiate career progresses. Chris Mazza
