Unless Taylor Hall flunks coach Tom Renney's Wednesday morning fitness test - a simulation of a hard game-type shift - before the Edmonton Oilers jet to Phoenix, you'll see Hall on the left wing with captain Shawn Horcoff and Ales Hemsky against the Coyotes Thursday night.

That'll be 19 days and seven games he'll have missed since his left shoulder got the worst of a hellacious hit from Colorado Avalanche defenceman Ryan Wilson in Denver on Nov. 26. So, the club's two-to-four-week prognosis was pretty accurate.

In a twist, Wilson is hurt now, out with a suspected concussion.

Hall doesn't anticipate failing Renney's exam.

"He says he doesn't have to even take it," Renney said, laughing.
