    Capitals' Taylor Chorney: Will play Thursday

    Chorney (illness) is on the ice for warmups and will return to the lineup Thursday against the Islanders, Mike Vogel of the Capitals' official site reports. Chorney was considered questionable heading into the contest, but his presence on the ice for warmups indicates he'll be able to give it a go. Barring an odd setback of some kind, there's no reason to believe he shouldn't be good to go moving forward. The blueliner was paired with Dmitry Orlov during line rushes, and will likely serve in the same role for the contest.

    Capitals' Taylor Chorney: Leaves in first period Tuesday due to flu

    Chorney (illness) left early in the first period of Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Panthers due to flu-like symptoms, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. Chorney had been feeling under-the-weather prior to Tuesday's game and left after logging just 4:34 of ice time. He was absent from Wednesday's practice so his status for Thursday's date with the Islanders is uncertain. He has five assists and a plus-12 rating in 39 games this season.

    Capitals' Taylor Chorney: Gets helper against Rangers

    Chorney tallied an assist in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Rangers. Chorney assisted on the game-winning goal midway through the second period. Called upon to fill the shoes of Brooks Orpik (lower body) in November, Chorney has been a steady and reliable presence for the Capitals which has helped them through a dominant two-month stretch despite missing some key pieces. While his plus-14 rating is uncommon for a depth defenseman, he does not get enough offensive opportunity and has just five points (all assists) on the season. His value to the Capitals is likely higher than it is in most fantasy leagues.

    Capitals' Taylor Chorney: Has points in consecutive games

    Chorney tallied an assistin Saturday's 7-3 blowout over Colorado. The points represent Chorney's sole offensive contributions on the season as he has had trouble staying in the lineup given the solid play of Nate Schmidt and Dmitry Orlov. With Brooks Orpik (lower-body) nearing a return to the lineup, Chorney may again be relegated to the press box, and thus his fantasy value remains extremely limited.
