Taylor Hall chirps Ryan Strome for slapshot video

Sporting News — (Jackie Spiegel)

While the NHL's 2019-20 season is currently on pause and players are quarantined, many players have taken to Twitter to show fans just what they're doing with their newfound spare time.

On Thursday, the New York Rangers' Ryan Strome posted a video of himself firing off slapshots ... with tennis balls ... on a basketball court ... in slippers.

Then came the chirp of all chirps from the Arizona Coyotes' Taylor Hall, who is, by the way, an upcoming unrestricted free agent this summer.

Well, Taylor, considering Strome was having a career year with 59 points (18 goals, 41 assists) in 70 games  — the answer is yes.
