Here’s Taylor Hall’s Face After Being Cut By A Skate Blade (Pic)

Yesterday we provided you all with footage of the incident that took place during the pregame warm-up prior to Tuesday night’s game between the Edmonton Oilers and the Columbus Blue Jackets, which resulted in a nasty cut above the eye of Oilers forward Taylor Hall.

Today, several media outlets have released photographs of the black eye and 30 stitches that can now be found on the face of Hall.

While those zippers do appear to be awfully painful, most of us, including Hall himself, can’t help but be thankful that the skate blade of Corey Potter didn’t catch him a few inches lower.

Hall is listed as doubtful for tonight’s game against the St. Louis Blues, but he is expected to return to the line-up soon, once the swelling has gone down and he can fit his head into a helmet comfortably.
