New Jersey Devils forward Taylor Hall should be feeling on top of the world right now. The 26-year-old just led the New Jersey Devils to their first playoff appearance since 2012 and was named the league’s most valuable player after accumulating 93 points in just 76 games. But despite it all, Hall admitted that he’s not satisfied. At least not yet.
The Calgary native stated that points aren’t what he’s concerned about. Instead, he’s more focused on winning a Stanley Cup before he eventually hangs up his skates.
After getting a taste of postseason hockey for the first time in his career, Hall is clearly eager to get back to the promised land next April. That’ll likely require another stellar season, considering the next highest scorer on the team was Nico Hischier with 52 points in 82 games. That’s a pretty big margin if you had to ask us!
Players are often defined by championships when it’s all said and done, so Hall will have an immense amount of pressure to lead the way on a relatively average roster. If the team adds some pieces around him, New Jersey could be in the hunt in a few years’ time.
