08:23 AM ET 10.10 | In terms of age, Taylor Hall just about fits in with the Edmonton Oil Kings, with whom he practiced on Tuesday. "I'm only a couple of months older than a couple of the kids," said Hall, 20, who is getting closer to taking full contact after shoulder surgery about six months ago. ... [Hall], who was monitored at the Oil Kings' practice by Oilers assistant athletic therapist Chris Davie, is itching to at least get to Oklahoma City to practise with the Oilers' affiliate. As for games, what's the hurry? "If this was the NHL, I'm sure I'd be rushing to play the first game, but I don't have that opportunity," said Hall, who isn't technically a locked-out NHLer because he's still rehabilitating an injury.
