The New Jersey Devils have finally traded left winger Taylor Hall. He has been mentioned in trade rumors lately.

The Devils even pulled him from a recent game, as a “precaution” with trade talks intensifying. He has been traded to the Arizona Coyotes.

Defenseman Kevin Bahl, forward Nick Merkley, and forward Nate Schnarr are now part of the Devils franchise. The team also acquired the Coyotes 2020 first-round pick that is top-three protected.

They are also receiving Arizona’s conditional third-round draft picks in 2021. If the Coyotes 2020 first-round pick happens to be in the top three, then the Devils will get their 2021 first-round pick.

There are several stipulations on the 2021 third-round pick:

• The third-round pick in 2021 becomes a second-round selection if Arizona wins a Stanley Cup Playoff round OR Taylor Hall re-signs in Arizona.

• The third-round pick in 2021 becomes a first-round selection if Arizona wins a Stanley Cup Playoff round AND Taylor Hall re-signs in Arizona.

• If neither condition happens, New Jersey still receives the 2021 third-round pick.

Hall is joining his third NHL team. He was previously the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 NHL Draft by the Edmonton Oilers.

He last played for the Devils against the Dallas Stars on December 10th. He had 2 PIM in 16 minutes and 25 seconds of ice time.

During the 2018-19 season, he played just 33 games. He had 11 goals and 26 assists for 37 points while having a -6 +/- and 16 PIM.

Hall last played nearly a full season during the 2017-18 season when he appeared in 76 games. He had 39 goals and 54 assists for 93 points that season.
