Blues' New Defenseman Taylor Chorney Thinks He's On "A Contender"

“I think I’m a guy that can skate well, move the puck well and have good gaps out there, use my speed to take away time and space,” Chorney said. “I’ll try to blend in well in the locker room and bring some character to the room as well.”

Basically, he’s a puck-mover. If that means moving the puck out of the Blues zone and away from goaltender Jaroslav Halak, well, that’s a good start.
