Playing career

Schroeder played high school hockey for St. Thomas Academy, a military preparatory school in Minnesota. He helped the St. Thomas Cadets to the Minnesota Class 1A tournament in both 2005 and 2006, winning the high school championship in 2006.[1] In 2006, he joined the U.S. National Team Development Program, located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where he spent two seasons. In his final season with the USNTDP, Schroeder led the team in scoring with 21 goals and 53 points in 55 games.[1] Schroeder joined the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers of the WCHA, a team he grew up wanting to play for, in 2008–09. Upon joining the Golden Gophers, Shroeder was the youngest player on the team.[1] He scored 13 goals and 32 assists in 32 games in his freshman year, the second highest total on the team, and was named WCHA Rookie of the Year.[2] Going into the 2009 NHL Entry Draft ranked 5th overall among North American skaters by NHL Central Scouting, Schroeder was drafted 22nd overall by the Vancouver Canucks.[3]

Prior to the start of the 2009–10 season, it was reported that Schroeder was planning on leaving the University of Minnesota and join the Everett Silvertips, a team in the major junior Western Hockey League. This was denied by Schroeder, who wanted to spend at least another year with the Golden Gophers.[4] The Golden Gophers finished the season with a losing record, the first time they had done so in over ten years, and lost in the first round of the playoffs, the second time in the past 33 years that had happened. Schroeder finished with 9 goals and 28 points in 37 games, tied for the team lead in points, the lowest for the team leading scorer since 1962.[5][6] On March 17, 2010 he signed a contract with the Canucks.[7] As with other entry-level contracts, Schroeder signed for three years at US$900,000 per year, with a signing bonus of $270,000. After spending a day in Vancouver, Schroeder will join their American Hockey League affilate, the Manitoba Moose, where he will earn a minor-league salary of $65,000 to $70,000.[8]

Schroeder debuted with the American junior national team internationally at the 2007 IIHF World U18 Championships in Finland. He helped the United States to a silver medal as he finished third in tournament scoring with 11 points, behind American teammates Colin Wilson and James van Riemsdyk.[9]

The following year, Schroeder was named to the under-20 team, the youngest on the team at seventeen, for the 2008 World Junior Championships in the Czech Republic.[10] He finished second in team-scoring, tied for fourth in the tournament, behind van Riemsdyk with one goal and seven assists for eight points in seven games.[11] Three months later, Schroeder made his second U18 tournament appearance, recording five points in seven games as the Americans earned a bronze medal.[12]

At the 2009 World Junior Championships in Canada, Schroeder established the American record for most career assists at the tournament with 15.[2] The youngest player on the team, Schroeder led the Americans in scoring with 11 points.[13]

On December 23, 2009, Schroeder was named to the American team for the 2010 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships, his third straight appearance at the World Junior Championships. The only player on the American team to play in two previous World Junior tournaments, Schroeder was also the first player from the University of Minnesota to participate in three tournaments.[14][15] In a quarter-final match against Finland Schroeder notched three assists, including his 26th career point in the tournament, surpassing Jeremy Roenick for the highest career total for an American. His 20 career assists was the third highest total in the history of the tournament.[16] He finished with three goals and five assists in seven games as the Americans won the gold medal.[17]

Personal life

Jordan was born in Prior Lake, Minnesota to John and Deb Schroeder. He began playing hockey at the age of four, with his first organized team called the Lakeville Mites.[2] Schroeder spent two years at St. Thomas Academy in Mendota Heights, Minnesota before graduating with high honors from Ann Arbor Pioneer High School in Ann Arbor.[12] He accelerated his high school education in order to play NCAA hockey a year early, taking courses online from Brigham Young University to do so.[18] Schroeder signed a letter of intent to join the University of Minnesota in November, 2007.[19] He enrolled at the school in the fall of 2008, majoring in business and marketing education.[12]
