This is Taylor Chorney. According to the Edmonton Journal (today’s edition) the Oilers will likely try to sign him after this weekend’s Frozen Four. Chorney, who turns 21 later this month, is eligible to play one more season at North Dakota.
The Oilers have already signed a few players for next year, including U of A Golden Bear Harlan Anderson and Providence College’s Cody Wild.
We also got some nice quotes on college free agent signee Bryan Lerg in the paper. Kevin Prendergast was quoted as saying “He’s a smaller version of Fernando Pisani” and “He plays bigger than he is, he’s very smart. I believe he can play in the NHL.”
