Senators add UConn forward Schneider
The Ottawa Senators have signed University of Connecticut free-agent forward Cole Schneider to a two-year, entry-level contract.

Schneider, a 21-year-old sophomore, set single-season school records with 23 goals and 45 points this season.

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound left wing, a native of Williamsville, N.Y., was assigned to the Senators' American Hockey League affiliate, the Binghamton Senators.
Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
