The Blues have signed defenseman Taylor Chorney to a new one-year, two-way contract, as reported by the team's official site. Chorney skated with the Peoria Rivermen during the 2012-13 season, scoring four goals and 20 assists in 73 games.  Chorney's contract can be summed up with one word: Depth.  Chorney is no stranger to the St. Louis system. Aside from skating with the Rivermen last season, he was claimed by the Blues when the Edmonton Oilers placed the defenseman on waivers back in 2011. Chorney appeared in two games for the Blues before being placed back on waivers where he was picked back up by Edmonton. The Blues then ended the cycle by giving Chorney a one-year deal in 2012.  At 26, Chorney provides depth for the Blues at the AHL level. Should injuries disrupt the defensive scheme at the NHL level, Chorney is at the very least a competent face that can fill in when called upon.
