Devils coach Peter DeBoer made the announcement Sunday according to Devils beat writers Rich Chere and Tom Gulitti.
Schneider is coming off a 22-save shutout performance in a 4-0 win over the New York Rangers on Saturday. It was the Devils' first win of the season, but Schneider has been solid in four starts with a 1.99 goals-against average and .927 save percentage.
Schneider started the Devils' season opener against the Pittsburgh Penguins, which ended Martin Brodeur's streak of consecutive opening night starts at 18. Brodeur then started back-to-back games against the New York Islanders and Edmonton Oilers, the only other time this season one of the goalies has played in consecutive games. Brodeur is 0-2-2 with a 3.40 GAA and .865 save percentage.
We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
