After being scratched in each of the last two games, Taylor Hall was traded by the Devils to the Arizona Coyotes, the team announced on Monday.
In return, the Devils received a pair of draft picks, including Arizona's first-rounder in 2020, along with defenseman Kevin Bahl and forwards Nick Merkley and Nate Schnarr.
Hall was expected to be a leader on and off the ice for the Devils, who brought in P.K. Subban in the offseason along with No. 1 overall draft pick Jack Hughes.
