The Chicago Blackhawks are gearing up for a highly-anticipated Monday clash in Toronto after a face-off with the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday. Their practice session held a remarkable surprise – the comeback of forward Taylor Hall. Hall had been sidelined following a collision with Boston Bruins defenseman Brandon Carlo during a Wednesday game, initially prompting the Blackhawks to label him "week to week."

While early speculations pointed toward a possible concussion due to his prolonged absence, Hall clarified on Sunday that the injury pertained to his shoulder. As Hall expressed,
"Was it a hit to the head? Maybe, but I passed the concussion protocol with ease. It's just dealing with a shoulder thing. That's hockey, that's how it goes, and at the end of the day, you've got to control the spots you put yourself in on the ice."

To the surprise of many, Hall confidently announced his readiness for the Monday game, marking a swift return after missing just one match.
"I don't set the timelines for injuries, but I've seen guys come back from my injury pretty quickly," Hall acknowledged. "I was always just thinking, 'Maybe take a game off and see if I can play in Toronto,' and I think I'll be able to do that."

This development brings significant news to the Blackhawks, who had initially braced for a more prolonged absence from Hall. They're now primed to capitalize on his presence as they aim to be the first to hand the undefeated Toronto Maple Leafs their initial loss of the regular season.
