Edmonton Oilers general manager Craig MacTavish announced Tuesday morning star forward Taylor Hall is expected to miss four weeks of action due to an injury to his left knee.

Hall suffered a n injury to the anterior cruciate ligament in the knee during Saturday's 3-1 Oilers win over the host Ottawa Senators following a knee-on-knee collision with Eric Gryba of the Ottawa Senators in the second period.

The Oilers close out their six-game road trip Tuesday night against the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday at the Bell Centre.

“He’s a big part of our team so it’s tough to see him get injured” Jordan Eberle said on Sunday.

But this morning Eberle said his club should be able to soldier on and succeed even minus Hall in the lineup.

"I don't think there's a better team to overcome Taylor's skill being out than ours -- we have a lot of weapons" Eberle said.
