Taylor Hall has become one of the league's most explosive players.

Taylor Hall was the No. 1 pick in the 2010 draft. When the Edmonton Oilers had their choice between Hall and Tyler Seguin, they were in a can't-miss position.

They could have gone with the speed, quickness and skill of Seguin, but they chose the power, drive and vicious shot of Hall.

Seguin, taken by the Boston Bruins, has played a key role on that powerhouse Eastern Conference team.

Hall flashed his talent in his first two years with the Oilers, but he has exploded in year three and become one of the top scorers and most dynamic players in the league.

Hall has scored 41 points to lead the surging Oilers, with 13 goals and 28 assists. Hall is the seventh-leading scorer in the league.

He has been especially hot during the end of March and beginning of April. He had a five-point night April 3 against Calgary. That effort came two games after recording a hat trick against the Vancouver Canucks.

The Oilers drafted Hall because they believed he would become a superstar who could lead them out of the non-playoff darkness and back into the spotlight.

He has been doing just that this season.

Here's a head-to-toe breakdown of Hall's game.
