Cory Schneider has been nominated for the King Clancy Award.

The King Clancy Award recognizes individuals who display on and off-ice leadership qualities and make humanitarian contributions. Schneider has now been nominated for this award for three consecutive years. Schneider started a new charitable program for the 2015-16 campaign called "Cory's Keepers," which brought 20 different veteran and youth groups to Devils contests. That in addition to his other charitable work, which includes volunteering with the Liberty Humane Society Shelter and raising money for ALS.

Cory Schneider was stellar in Saturday's 5-1 win over Toronto.

Schneider turned away 19 of 20 shots, including all three on special teams. He ends another sterling season with a 27-25-6 record with a 2.15 GAA and .924 save percentage. It'll be interesting to see if he can usurp Jonathan Quick as Team USA's top netminder in international play.

Cory Schneider has been penciled in as Saturday's starter.

Schneider will serve as the backup for Thursday's game against Tampa Bay though. He has a 2.17 GAA and .923 save percentage in 57 contests this season.

It wasn't quite vintage Cory Schneider, but he played well despite the 3-1 loss to Buffalo on Tuesday night.

Schneider turned away 15 of 17 shots, including six of seven on the kill. Schneider has now lost six in a row, with his last win coming against the Rangers on Feb. 23rd. In fact, he's now lost nine of his last 10 which drops his record to 26-25-6 on the season.

Cory Schneider will be back in the cage for New Jersey when Buffalo visits on Tuesday night.

He blocked 33 of 35 shots in a 3-1 loss to Tampa Bay in his return to the lineup on Saturday. Schneider has posted 26 wins, a 2.17 save percentage and a .924 save percentage in 56 games this season.

Cory Schneider felt really good in his return to action Saturday after missing a month with a knee injury.

Schneider made 33 saves in a 3-1 loss to Tampa Bay and is now 26-24-6 with a 2.17 GAA and a .924 save percentage. "Probably a little better than I thought I would, actually," Schneider said when asked after the game on how he felt. "The conditions down here when its hot and humid sometimes you can get a little fatigued more easily, but I was happy with how I felt in terms of when the game went along and I had a lot of action. So overall I felt good."
Apr 3 - 7:10 AM

Cory Schneider made 33 saves in the Devils’ 3-1 loss to the Lightning on Saturday night.

This was his first start since March 4 as he dealt with a knee injury. The last goal came with him at the bench for the extra skater. Like usual, Schneider had to be perfect to give his team a chance to win. This was his best effort since Feb. 19, a span of six starts. He has a 2.17 GAA and .924 SV%.
Apr 2 - 10:07 PM

Cory Schneider will be between the pipes on Saturday.

It will be Schneider's first game since March 4 when he suffered a knee injury. The netminder has been stellar this season with a 26-23-6 record to go with a 2.17 GAA and a .923 save percentage. "It's exciting. It's fun," Schneider said. "Frankly, it's kind of boring when you're out. You're so used to being part of the team and playing in games and being involved, so the competitive drive in you kicks in. It was the right decision to not play [Thursday]. Keith played great. For me, it's not just about playing. I have to play well. I have to come in and feel good about my game and help the team, so it's not just doing it just to do it. I want to do it to play well and contribute and help us win." Go ahead and start him if he is on your reserve list.

Cory Schneider (knee) is expected to start on Saturday rather than Thursday.

That's not a reflection on Schneider's recovery from his knee injury as he'll still be the backup goalie on Thursday. Instead this gives Schneider a bit more time to get back into the swing of things after being activated from the injured reserve list on Wednesday.
Mar 31 - 12:45 PM

Cory Schneider (knee) has been taken off the injured reserve list.

Schneider might not get the start on Thursday, but he will be an option. The Devils also reassigned Scott Wedgewood, so Schneider will at very least be the backup goaltender.
Mar 30 - 2:48 PM

Cory Schneider (knee) took part in New Jersey's optional practice on Wednesday.

Schneider might be ready to rejoin the Devils for Thursday's game, but a decision won't be made until he participates in that day's morning skate. It sounds like he's probable for that contest though as he feels good enough to return to the lineup.
Mar 30 - 1:05 PM

Cory Schneider (knee) is hoping to be back in the crease for Thursday's game against the Florida Panthers.

If he doesn't start then, it is likely that Schneider will play Saturday night at Tampa Bay. "Tomorrow, get a practice in and even a morning skate Thursday and see how it goes," Schneider said Tuesday after practice. "I'm not making and promises, but that's probably at the earliest (he'll play) and, hopefully, at least for sure by Saturday." He has been out of action since Mar. 4 with a sprained MCL in his right knee.
Mar 29 - 4:01 PM

The Devils placed Cory Schneider on IR retroactive to March 4th (Grade 1 MCL Sprain of right knee).

This is more of a procedural maneuver. Schneider will practice with AHL Albany on Monday on a conditioning assignment. Then return to New Jersey on Tuesday, but he won't play. New Jersey will travel to face the Panthers on Thursday, then the Lightning on Saturday following Tuesday's home match to Boston.
Mar 27 - 3:18 PM

The Devils have announced that Cory Schneider is headed to Albany on a conditioning assignment and will practice with the Albany Devils on Monday, but he won't play for New Jersey on Tuesday.

New Jersey will travel to face the Panthers on Thursday, then the Lightning on Saturday following Tuesday's home match to Boston. All signs appear pointing towards Schneider's imminent return, but we'd remain patient.
