Chorney returns to hometown

The Sherwood Park Crusaders are proud to announce the signing of forward Carter Chorney (01) from the Regina Pats (WHL).

“We are very excited to be adding Carter Chorney to our forward group,” said General Manager and Head Coach Adam Manah. “He is a big body that plays hard and heavy. His size along the walls will help in our end in getting pucks out clean.”

Chorney is a Sherwood Park native that played his minor hockey for the Kings club. He was selected 39th overall in the 2016 WHL Bantam Draft by the Spokane Chiefs. The 6’0, 183 lb forward played 181 games in the WHL for the Chiefs, Swift Current Broncos and Regina Pats and scored 57 points (27 goals, 30 assists).

Last season with Regina, Chorney dressed in 24 games in the WHL’s shortened season. In those games, he scored four goals and finished with 12 points.

“In the offensive zone, he protects pucks well and will be hard to play against down low below the goal line,” continued Manah. “He brings skill, has great vision, and can put the puck in the net. His scoring ability will provide us more depth up front, and he is a guy we expect to score us big goals in the critical moments when we need him to. We are looking forward to getting him into our lineup this weekend.”

The Crusaders would like to welcome Carter and the Chorney organization. Fans can catch Chorney and the rest of the Crusaders in action tonight against the Spruce Grove Saints. You can purchase tickets by clicking here.
