  • Chorney sat in the press box during Saturday's 4-3 overtime victory over Columbus. Chorney has now been scratched the last two games in the nation's capital and has been struggling to find consistent playing time throughout 2017-18, only averaging 13:01. The 30-year-old has put up three points (one goal, two assists) in 20 games, but unless Washington encounters injuries to its defensive corps, it seems likely his usage and point production will remain similar for the rest of the season.

  • Chorney netted a goal in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Islanders. The 30-year-old defenseman opened the scoring early in the first period to give him two points in nine games to start the season.

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.
