Defenceman Taylor Chorney was drafted by the Edmonton Oilers in the second round of the 2005 entry draft and it seems that 7 years later, his time with the organization may be at an end.

Taylor Hall, who aggravated a shoulder injury he's been dealing with on Friday, didn't practice with the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday. According to Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal, the former No. 1 overall pick may not play tonight against Anaheim. Certainly, the Oilers could use one of their top players in the lineup against a surging team like the Ducks, but they'...
Edmonton Oilers’ defenceman Ladislav Smid has never been thought of as an offensive defenceman, but his 3 goals this season are another reason for people to take note.

The news broke last night that Taylor Hall did not participate in the team’s Sunday practice, ailing from an shoulder injury suffered Friday night against the Dallas Stars. Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal quoted head coach Tom Renney who stated: “This was a maintenance day here for Taylor. Obviously, he’s had some issues with his shoulder and T.D. (Forss, the trainer)...
Dallas 3 - Edmonton 1
It wasn't pretty, but the Stars did what they had to do last night. They beat an inferior Edmonton Oilers squad despite not playing their most efficient game. Dallas got depth line scoring in this game through hard work, a little luck and sheer force of will.
This was a pretty sleepy game all-around. Dallas never recorded more than six shots in...
With their playoff hopes fading fast, a game against the Edmonton Oilers might be just what the Anaheim Ducks need.
The Ducks try to continue their dominance over the lowly Oilers when they meet Monday night at Honda Center.
Anaheim (28-28-10) has dropped three of four and is seven points out of playoff position with 16 games remaining. The Ducks squandered a chance to gain ground...
