Chorney had an assist in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Flyers. The assist came in Chorney's first action since Jan. 31. He's been an infrequent presence in the Capitals lineup this season, but with Matt Niskanen (lower-body) on the injured list, it's likely the 29-year-old will see more consistent minutes in the short-term.
Chorney picked up an assist in Monday's 8-7 OT loss to the Penguins. His third point of the season certainly helped ease the absence of John Carlson (upper body). With three points in 9 games, Chorney is a steady reserve defenseman for the Capitals, but will struggle to provide much fantasy value unless he can log regular minutes.
Chorney will be in the lineup Monday against the Penguins, With John Carlson (lower body) held out of the lineup, Chorney will make his first appearance since Jan. 3. His two points in eight games has been helpful for the Capitals, but his modest ice time and lack of opportunity in offensive situations limit his upside to deeper formats.
Chorney's first goal of the season held up as the game-winner Sunday against Ottawa. Chorney managed just one goal in 55 games last season, so it's nice to see the blueliner notch his first in just his seventh game this time around. The 29-year-old isn't known for his offense, however, and doesn't play on the power play, so given his limited ice time and previous career high of six points, it's best to avoid him in most fantasy leagues
Chorney will be in the lineup Friday against the Blackhawks, Tarik El-Bashir of CSN Washingtonreports. This will mark the 29-year-old defenseman's first time in the lineup during the 2016-17 season. With only eight points in 55 games last season, Chorney will have difficulty finding consistent ice time and doesn't possess much fantasy relevance at this time. He is expected to play with Brooks Orpik on the third defense pairing.
