Schneider took part in the Competition Committee talks that led to the approval of 3-on-3 overtime for this season.
"It's going to be interesting for the goalies," Schneider told ESPN.com in remarks published Thursday. "I was a passenger during that discussion. I suggested a side category where a goalie's 3-on-3 stats could be hidden away and not put into your main stats, because it's going to be tough.
"There's so much talent in the NHL and sometimes 5-on-5 opens up, but 3-on-3 is going to open up and fans are really going to love it. It's going to be up and down the ice. It's going to be hard for us goalies, so we're going to have to be really sharp and ready to go."
