After the Blackhawks announced that Taylor Hall would be forced to miss the remainder of the season, teammate Connor Bedard spoke to reporters and expressed his sadness for the five-time All-Star, with whom he shares a massive commonality.

Top picks playing together

The Chicago Blackhawks acquired Hall via trade with the Boston Bruins in the offseason. A former first overall selection in the NHL Entry Draft, he would serve mostly on the team's second line before suffering his injury back in early November, initially.

On Thursday, the team announced that he would miss the remainder of the NHL season as he requires surgery to repair an ACL injury in his right knee.

Hall was brough in to play alongside Bedard, this past NHL Entry Draft's first overall pick who has garnered just as much if not more hype than Hall with his debuting in the NHL this season.

In losing the 14-year veteran and former Hart Trophy winner, Bedard seemed devasted.

"It's heartbreaking, like I said. Obviously, we're rooting for him and wishing him the best. We know he's still going to be around, and of course, a big part of the team. It's sad, but we know he's going to do what he can to get back."

Hall scored two goals and added two assists in 10 games with Chicago this season.

Lifetime, the 32-year-old has scored 266 goals and tallied 431 assists in 832 NHL games.
