Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Del Hall
Centre Del Hall played a handful of NHL games with the California Golden Seals in the early 1970's. His offensive contributions were far more substantial in the WHA and the minors.

Born in Peterborough, Ontario, Hall spent a year each filling the net for the junior B Chatham Maroons and St. Clair College. Prior to the 1971-72 season he was signed as a free agent by California. Over the next three years he played eight NHL games but spent most of his time with the California Seals of the IHL and the WHL's Salt Lake Golden Eagles.

After recording consecutive 30-goal seasons in Salt Lake, Hall joined the Phoenix Roadrunners of the WHA in 1974-75 and notched a personal best 47 goals. He scored 38 times the next season but was sold to the Cincinnati Stingers by the financially-troubled Roadrunners. Hall's production decreased and he was traded to the Edmonton Oilers where he played one game before retiring in 1978.
