April 28, 2015 By Brian Coe The Pittsburgh Penguins defensive corps was beset by injuries during the 2014-15 season, and as the team closed in on the playoffs, it saw the loss of two of its biggest cogs - Kris Letang and Christian Ehrhoff. But those unfortunate circumstances led to opportunity for Taylor Chorney.   Now in his seventh professional season, Chorney was a huge part of the top-rated defense in the American Hockey League this season, leading Wilkes-Barre/Scranton with a plus-26 rating… read more
