Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Marc Chorney
Defenseman Marc Chorney, born in Fort William, Ontario on November 8th, 1959 spent four very successful seasons with the University of North Dakota before jumping to the National Hockey League in 1981.

Chorney, who was named to the NCAA All-Tournament Team in 1980, and two First All Star Teams in 1981 went directly to the Pittsburgh Penguins following his final collegiate season.

Chorney played 8 games that season and scored 7 points. The next year, 1981-82, Chorney upped his games played to sixty, yet his point total remained at 7.

Early in the 1983-84 season the Pittsburgh Penguins traded Chorney to the Los Angeles Kings where he played a career high 71 games and registered a personal best 12 points.

Despite his success that year, he left the Kings and signed with the Washington Capitals as a free agent. However, he was unable to make the Capitals roster and spent that year, his last as a hockey player, in the American Hockey League with the Binghamton Whalers.
