Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Cory Schneider
Cory Schneider was born on March 18, 1986 in Marblehead, Massachusetts. He was selected in the first round, 26th overall of the NHL Entry Draft by the Vancouver Canucks in 2004.

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. Upon turning professional and joining the Manitoba Moose, Schneider was named AHL Goaltender of the Year following his second AHL season in 2009.

Schneider received his first NHL call-up from Manitoba in 2008-09, 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 in addition to establishing a team record with 10 straight wins. 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. He subsequently recorded his first NHL win in a 16-save, 2-1 victory against the Minnesota Wild on December 5. After appearing in eight games for the Canucks he was sent back to the Moose on January 5, 2009.

In 2010-11, Schneider would further cement his role with the Canucks. Along with teammate, Roberto Luongo, he was awarded the William M. Jennings Trophy which is given to "the goalkeeper(s) having played a minimum of 25 games for the team with the fewest goals scored against during the NHL's regular season." Schneider would make his playoff debut during the first round of the 2011 NHL playoffs against the Chicago Blackhawks. He came on in relief of Roberto Luongo in both games four and five and made his first start in game six, a game the Canucks would lose in overtime.

During the playoffs in the 2011-12 season, Schneider supplanted Luongo as the number one goaltender, which created a goalie controversy in Vancouver. This continued on into the 2012-13 lockout season, where Luongo had requested a trade out of Vancouver, as Schneider got the majority of starts.

The Canucks ended up trading Schneider instead to the New Jersey Devils for a first round draft pick at the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. Schneider's career with the Devils started with him sharing the net with legendary goaltender, Martin Brodeur. However, when Brodeur left the Devils organization, he gained his status as a top goaltender in the NHL.
