To reiterate: This is not the same injury Hall was playing through. It's one that is a nagging injury for a long time, which in RNH's case got badly aggravated early on this season.

Medical opinion was that the decision to continue playing was up to the player - but to return to full function the injury would require surgery at some point.

It's an injury that could have been worsened with more aggravation over the course of the season. And post-op prognosis would have been worsened as well if the injury had been more severely aggravated as well.

Kind of a medium-sized risk for the Oilers to take on him playing this season given that kind of context.
