During the 2018 off-season, Cory Schneider underwent surgery on his hip and has been working his way back into the lineup ever since.

On October 19, 2018, Schneider was activated off the injured non-roster list and assigned to Binghamton for a conditioning loan.

He got the start in net for the first time when the team faced off against the Red Wings in Detroit on November 1, 2018. The game resulted in a 4-2 loss for the Devils.

Injury struck again in the middle of December and had the netminder out for another six weeks. At the beginning of February, on a conditioning loan in Binghamton, Schneider recorded a win for the Devils' AHL team on February 1.

And on February 15, Schneider got his first win of the season in a 5-4 overtime victory in Minnesota after coming into the game in relief of Keith Kinkaid in the second period. The win earned Schneider the helmet, which goes to the unsung hero of the game.

He couldn't help but crack a joke when making his post-game speech.

The win not only marked Schneider's first win of the season but was his first victory in 21 regular-season games over two seasons, and the course of 415 days. He started in net just two days later, on February 17, when the Devils returned to Prudential Center to take on the Buffalo Sabres. One win wasn't enough for the 32-year-old, where he posted a 4-1 victory on the night. The netminder turned aside 34 shots and earned the first star of the game.

Schneider started in net again on Thursday night when the Devils hosted the Ottawa Senators at Prudential Center. Two wins in one week weren't enough, and the goalie closed out the week on a high-note, posting his first shutout since November 1, 2017. He stopped all 30 shots he faced.
