  • Traded to New Jersey in 2013 at the NHL Entry Draft from the Vancouver Canucks.

  • Made his Devils debut on October 3rd 2013 while visiting the Pittsburgh Penguins.

  • Schneider recorded his first ever victory with New Jersey on October 8th, 2013 against the team that had just traded him earlier that summer. Schneider posted an overtime victory stopping 29 of 23 shots against the Canucks.

  • Schneider has played in a goaltending tandem with two notable counterparts. In his first five seasons in the NHL, Schneider played behind Roberto Luongo and then, coming over to New Jersey, split time with Hall of Famer Martin Brodeur before taking over as the full-time starter in the 2014-15 season. 

  • While with Vancouver, Schneider was the co-winner (with Roberto Luongo) of the William M. Jennings Trophy for fewest team goals allowed by an NHL team.

  • Schneider currently has the top billing in franchise history for his overall save percentage at .915. Right behind Schneider is Martin Brodeur at .912.

  • When it comes to total wins with the franchise, Schneider sits third. The 688 wins by Brodeur are next to untouchable in this day and age of the NHL, Chris Terreri is behind Brodeur in the two spot with 118 wins, while Schneider holds on to third with 115. 

  • Cory also has ample international experience with Team USA. He has been a part of two U.S. Men's National Team, in 2007 and 2019. At the 2019 World Championship, he played six games, recorded a 2.49 GAA and a .920 save percentage

  • In 2005 and 2006, Schneider played for the U.S. National Junior Teams and he won silver in 2004 as a member of the U.S. Men's National Under-18 Team.

  • Along with his wife Jill, the Schneiders have been active members in the New Jersey community since they arrived in 2013. The Schneider's launched Cory's Keepers, which hosts community groups at all 41 Prudential Center games, followed by a meet-and-greet with the Schneider's post-game.

  • Following the 2017-2018 season, Schneider was nominated for the NHL's King Clancy Memorial Trophy. The trophy recognizes a player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution to his community.
