It's no secret that throughout the Devils' history, their teams have been built around elite goaltending. When the Devils acquired Cory Schneider during the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, a strong last line of defense was a certainty for the foreseeable future. After spending four years with the club, Schneider holds a .919 save-percentage and 2.32 GAA, while also racking up 5,946 saves and 14 shutouts in 232 games played.

After being the Devils NHL All-Star Game representative during the 2015-16 season, Cory Schneider entered the 2016-17 season with a revamped defense. Over the course of the season, New Jersey's blueliners would consist of seven new faces, including Ben Lovejoy, Kyle Quincey, Steve Santini, Yohann Auvitu, Dalton Prout, Karl Stollery and Michael Kapla. Although these players had only spent one season (228 combined games played) with Schneids as their netminder, it didn't take long for them to recognize that he is a top NHL talent.

Tweet from @NJDevils: Lovejoy on the play of Schneider this week: "Cory's our best player. He's our superstar. He's the guy we rely on." #NJDvsCAR
