Taylor Chorney returns to OKC. Take that, you show-boating, fastest skater…

General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today the Edmonton Oilers have assigned defenceman Taylor Chorney to Oklahoma City of the American Hockey League.

Chorney, 23, was recalled to the Oilers on December 10 and played in six games collecting two assists.

The 6’0”, 193-pound Thunder Bay, Ontario native has appeared in 40 games with Oklahoma City scoring three goals and adding 12 assists.

I would think that means Jim Vandermeer is back. Never thought I’d be saying this, but, thank god!

    This is just the first move of the deadline sell off, and yes it is happening a month before hand. With Eberle just about ready to return, and Hemsky not THAT far off (But far enough), more roster move have to be made. I sure hope JFJ is tossed up on waivers, he has done nothing to earn a roster spot over soeone like Liam Reddox, he has to be the first forward to be put on waivers. I also think that Linus Omark will be sent back down to the AHL for another brief stint with the Barons until the Trading Deadline.
