After being held out of Friday night's game in Colorado, Taylor Hall is once again out of the lineup as the Devils prepare to take on the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday, according to NHL reporter John Shannon.
Hall skated in warmups on Friday, but was a healthy scratch for what the Devils termed as "precautionary reasons."
Rumors have swirled over the past week that New Jersey was shopping the 28-year-old, and those rumors intensified after he was taken out of the lineup against the Avalanche.

The Devils acquired Hall from the Edmonton Oilers prior to the 2016-17 season. The former No. 1 overall draft pick has 208 points (76 goals, 132 assists) in 211 games with the team. He also won the Hart Trophy as the NHL's Most Valuable Player in 2017-18.
