Cory Franklin Schneider (born March 18, 1986 in Marblehead, Massachusetts) is an American professional ice hockey goaltender currently playing for the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League (AHL). He is a prospect for the Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Schneider was drafted in the first round, 26th overall by the Canucks in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. Following his draft, he began a three-year tenure with the Boston College Eagles, winning two Lamoriello Trophies as Hockey East champions during his college career. After turning professional with the Moose, Schneider was named AHL Goaltender of the Year following his second AHL season in 2009.

Playing career

Boston College (2004–07)

After being drafted by the Vancouver Canucks in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Schneider played his first year with the Boston College Eagles of Hockey East in 2004–05. He played 18 games with a 1.90 goals against average (GAA) and a .916 save percentage while finishing with a record of 13-1-4. He was named 2004 David Peterson Goalie of the Year by USA Hockey.[1] During his three seasons with Boston College, he appeared in 97 games, compiling a college career record of 65-25-7. He captured two Lamoriello Trophies with Boston College in 2005 and 2007 as Hockey East champions and finished as runner-up to Boston University in 2006. Schneider currently holds the Boston College record for single-season shutouts (8 in 2005–06) and saves (1,111 in 2006–07) as well as the record for most career shutouts.[1]

Manitoba Moose (2007–present)

Coming off his second Hockey East championship in 2007, Schneider signed an entry-level contract with the Vancouver Canucks on July 3, 2007;[2] he was subsequently assigned to the Canucks' minor league affiliate, the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League (AHL). After a shaky start to the 2007–08 season (3-7-0 record, 3.69 GAA and .872 save percentage in 11 games),[3] he was privately called out by head coach Scott Arniel in mid-December after being pulled the previous game.[4] Schneider recalls the meeting with Arniel, stating "[he] was one of the first guys to...tell me I wasn't good enough, something that I hadn't really heard a lot growing up. Sometimes it's something you need to hear."[3] From that point on, he emerged as Manitoba's starting goalie over fellow Canucks prospect Drew MacIntyre,[5] and was named the AHL Rookie of the Month for March.[4] He finished the season with a 21-12-2 record, 2.28 GAA and .916 save percentage. Although the Moose were eliminated in the first round by the Syracuse Crunch, Schneider had an impressive playoffs, recording a 1.92 GAA and .938 save percentage.

Schneider received his first NHL call-up from Manitoba in 2008–09, on November 22, following an injury to Canucks starter Roberto Luongo. At the time of his call-up, he was leading the AHL in both wins and GAA[6] in addition to establishing a team record with 10 straight wins.[7] After playing backup to Curtis Sanford for two games, Schneider made his first NHL appearance and start on November 29 against the Calgary Flames, making 28 saves in a 3-1 loss.[8] He subsequently recorded his first NHL win in a 16-save, 2–1 victory against the Minnesota Wild on December 5.[9] After appearing in eight games for the Canucks, goaltender Jason LaBarbera was acquired in a trade from the Los Angeles Kings and Schneider was soon, thereafter, sent back to the Moose on January 5, 2009.[10] During his time in Vancouver, Schneider had been named AHL Goalie of the Month for November.[11] Upon returning to Manitoba, he was named the starting goalie for Planet USA for the 2009 AHL All-Star Classic[12] and was named Top Goaltender for the Skills Competition.[13] Near the end of the season, he was chosen as AHL Player of the Week on March 30, 2009, after allowing 5 goals in 3 starts.[11] Then, leading the league in GAA and save percentage, Schneider was awarded the Aldege "Baz" Bastien Memorial Award as AHL goaltender of the year.[14]

Competing with the newly-acquired Andrew Raycroft for the Canucks' backup position for 2009–10, Schneider was, however, sent back down to the Moose out of training camp.[15] Less than a month into the season, Schneider received his second NHL call-up with the Canucks to backup Raycroft after Luongo was sidelined with a rib fracture on October 28, 2009.[16] He remained with the Canucks for nearly two weeks, earning one start against the Dallas Stars on November 6, stopping 45 shots in a 2–1 loss. He was returned to the Moose on November 10.[17]

Despite being the reigning goaltender of the year in the AHL and having a comparable season, Schneider was not named to PlanetUSA for the 2010 AHL All-Star Game. The non-selection drew criticism from the Winnipeg media and Moose head coach Arniel.[18]

Personal life

Schneider was born to parents Susan and Richard Schneider[5] in Marblehead, MA, and attended Marblehead High School for one year before attending prep school at Phillips Academy in Andover, MA, before attending Boston College.
