Adam Hall was born August 14, 1980 in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The 2nd round choice, 52nd overall selection of the Nashville Predators in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft, Hall is a graduate of CCHA's Michigan State Spartans and the United States Under-18 team.
The Kalamazoo, Michigan native spent four seasons at Michigan State where in his freshman year he led all Spartan rookies in scoring with 23, was voted the Spartans Rookie of the Year, was named to the CCHA All-Rookie Team, was a finalist for the CCHA Rookie of the Year honours and was named to the NCAA West Regional All-Tournament Team.
A member of the United States World Junior Team in 1999 and 2000, Hall considered a good playmaker and puckhandler led the CCHA in goals with 26 and ranked fifth in the conference and second on his team in overall scoring with 39 points in his sophomore season while earning Second Team All-CCHA honours.
In 2000-01 Hall ranked second in goals with 18 and third in team scoring with 30 points leading Michigan State to the CCHA Championship over arch rival Michigan. In his senior year, Hall was rewarded with the captaincy and went on to lead the Spartans in goal scoring for the second time in his four year career at Michigan State with 19 while finishing second in overall scoring with 34 points.
Once the Michigan State 2001-02 season came to a close, the Predators recalled Hall from the Spartans and assigned him to their AHL affiliate in Milwaukee while playing in two games with the Predators. Hall became one of the pleasant surprises of the Predators 2002-03 season, playing only one game in the AHL with Milwaukee before landing a full time spot on the Predators roster. Hall's consistent play drew rave reviews and he was chosen to participate in the 2003 Topps/NHL YoungStars game on All-Star weekend and later that spring represented the U.S. at the World Championships.
In 2003-04, Hall continued his strong play and was a key contributor to the Predators success in making the post season for the first time in franchise history. Although the Preds' fell in six games to the Detroit Red Wings, Hall's strong play in the series earned him an invite to the 2004 World Championships in Prague, Czech Republic. In the spring of 2005, Hall's tour of duty with the U.S. World Championship team continued.
After spending the majority of his professional in Nashville, Hall was dealt to the New York Rangers in exchange for Dominic Moore in the summer of 2006. As a member of the Rangers Hall would struggle offensively. As a result, Hall was dealt to the Minnesota Wild in exchange for Pascal Dupuis in February of 2007.
During the 2012 NHL lockout Hall signed with the EV Ravensburg Tower Stars of the German 2nd Bundesliga, where he led the club in scoring before returning to the Lightning for the shortened 2012-13 season. On March 16, 2013 into Hall was placed on waivers and claimed by the Carolina Hurricanes. In a unique twist, Hall was traded back to the Lightning just two weeks later for Marc-André Bergeron. The Lightning promptly placed him on waivers and he was claimed by the Philadelphia Flyers on April 3, 2013.
