Taylor Hall's days with the New Jersey Devils could be numbered.

The club has started to listen to teams looking to acquire the star forward, reports TSN's Pierre LeBrun, who adds that while it doesn't mean a trade is certain, Devils general manager Ray Shero is now in "listening mode."

Shero met face-to-face with Hall's agent Darren Ferris earlier this month.

Hall, a pending unrestricted free agent, is in the final season of the seven-year, $42-million contract he inked with the Edmonton Oilers in 2012.

Shero said in March there was "zero chance" he was going to trade the 2017-18 Hart Trophy winner at the 2018-19 trade deadline.

However, after a busy offseason that included the additions of P.K. Subban, Nikita Gusev, and first overall pick Jack Hughes, New Jersey enters Saturday's action with the second-worst record in the Eastern Conference.
