His left ankle is encased in a walking cast and it will likely cost Taylor Hall a chance at the Calder Trophy, but for me, Hall's fight with Derek Dorsett Thursday makes the name that ends up engraved on the trophy for the NHL's top rookie in 2011 a moot point.

Taylor Hall has taken more than his share of abuse this season. The young phenom has a vast array of skills, and one of them is pissing off the opposition with a motor that won't quit and a compete level that's off the scale.

I just spoke with a source who said, nothing broken, but Hall is likely out for a few weeks at least. Severe sprain, possibly the dreaded high ankle sprain, if so, a return this year is doubtful.
