Oklahoma City Barons winger Taylor Hall was named the CCM/AHL Player of the Week on Monday.

Hall notched one goal and eight assists with a plus-6 rating in three games last week as the Barons began a seven-game road stretch with three straight victories.

On Wednesday, Hall scored the game-winning goal and tallied two assists as the Barons rallied from a 3-1 deficit to defeat the Texas Stars, 6-4. On Saturday, he notched three assists and set up the game-winner as Oklahoma City staged a third-period comeback and defeated the Charlotte Checkers, 4-2. And in Sunday's rematch, Hall assisted on the game-winning goal again, highlighting another three-assist performance in the Barons' 7-2 win over Charlotte.

Hall, who joined the Barons on Oct. 30 after completing his recovery from shoulder surgery, has 11 points in his last four games and four goals and 11 assists for 15 points in 10 total games with Oklahoma City this season.

The first overall pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, the third-year pro and 21-year-old native of Calgary, Alta., has notched 49 goals and 46 assists for 95 points in 126 National Hockey League games with Edmonton.
