Veteran goalie won his last four starts with Binghamton @NHLdotcom

Cory Schneider was recalled by the New Jersey Devils from Binghamton of the American Hockey League on Sunday.

The veteran goalie, who was assigned to Binghamton upon clearing waivers on Nov. 21, will back up Louis Domingue against the Tampa Bay Lightning at Prudential Center on Sunday (7 p.m. ET; MSG+, SUN, NHL.TV).

Schneider was 4-4-0 with a 3.00 goals-against average and .894 save percentage in eight AHL games. He was 4-0-0 with a 1.23 GAA and .952 save percentage with just five goals against in his past four starts.

"He went down looking to find his game [in Binghamton] and put in a lot of work and you could tell by his last few starts that he's been doing a really good job, has found his confidence again," Devils coach Alain Nasreddine said. "So this is good timing to have him back."

Schneider is 0-4-1 with a 4.59 GAA and .852 save percentage in six games with the Devils this season and has been dealing with injuries in each of the past two seasons. He had surgery to repair a core muscle injury in May 2016, and surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left hip in May 2018.

He has two seasons remaining after this one on a seven-year contract he signed with the Devils on July 9, 2014. In seven seasons with the Devils after being acquired in a trade with the Vancouver Canucks on June 30, 2013, Schneider is 112-131-49 with a 2.50 GAA and .915 save percentage in 304 games.

In a corresponding move, the Devils re-assigned goalie Evan Cormier to Binghamton.
