Oilers sign Hall to seven-year deal
Now, the Oilers have friggin’ rewarded him.
According to Bob McKenzie of TSN, the Oilers have locked him up for the next seven years with a $42 million contract. Not bad for a 20-year old.
“Taylor Hall’s agent Paul Krepelka has concluded negotiations with EDM on a 7-year extension that will pay Hall $6M per year,” tweets McKenzie.
Hall seems to be the real deal, hence why they took him first overall. And because he’s so young, if he blossoms into the player they think he’s going to be, they could have him at a discount for years to come.
