Taylor Hall was forced out of commission on Tuesday night after he inadvertently took a skate to the face during warm-ups.

In an interview with the good folks at The National Post, Kim Strba said that her son has been ordered to always wear a helmet from here on out.
“We’ve had that discussion. Yes, he will be wearing his helmet,” she said.
