Cory Schneider underwent successful surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left hip last Tuesday.
Schneider is projected to require five months of recovery time. The Devils intend to update his status over the summer when more information is available. Schneider, who dealt with the problem on and off throughout the season, could miss most of training camp or the start of the 2018-19 campaign, but he is expected to make a full recovery.

Cory Schneider is expected to be motivated to reclaim the number one goalie job on the Devils next year.

Schneider played well in the playoffs after he struggled down the stretch, while dealing with injuries. "Hopefully it's a springboard for him that he pushed through, and I think he learned a lot about himself and a lot about what it takes to stay in the net every night, and how competitive this league can be to have a job," said coach John Hynes. "I'm pretty sure Cory Schneider's going back home this summer as a very motivated player and looking for something to prove next year." Keith Kinkaid was superb when he received the opportunity to play regularly, so Schneider is projected to face competition for playing time.
May 1 - 9:54 AM

Cory Schneider was great in the postseason.

Schneider was in net for the Devils only win in the series, while posting a .950 save percentage as well as a 1.78 GAA. This is in stark contrast to his play the second half of the season when he went 0-10-2 since December 27, which was his last regular-season win. His performance in the playoffs should give him plenty of confidence heading into 2018-19.
Apr 22 - 7:52 AM

Cory Schneider stopped 35 of 37 shots in a 3-1 loss to Tampa Bay on Saturday afternoon in Game 5.

Schneider was excellent in the contest and in the series, but he could not hold back Tampa Bay and now the Devils' season is over. Keith Kinkaid started the first two games of the series for New Jersey before Schneider entered the fold in relief in Game 2 and reclaimed the crease afterward.
Apr 21 - 5:58 PM

Cory Schneider will start Game 5 against Washington.

That shouldn't come as a surprise, as Schneider has been superb in his previous two starts in the playoffs. He has posted a 1-1 record with a 1.67 goals-against average and .951 save percentage against Tampa Bay. The Devils need a win to stay alive in the postseason.
Apr 21 - 1:06 PM

Cory Schneider allowed two goals on 36 shots in Wednesday's 3-1 Game 4 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

It's a tough loss for Schneider who has now put in back-to-back great performances for the Devils. The series will now shift over back to Tampa with the Devils down 3-1 in the series. New Jersey will need another huge performance from their goaltender on Saturday if they have any chance at getting back into the series.
Apr 18 - 10:27 PM

Cory Schneider will be between the pipes for Game 4 against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday night.

Schneider was solid during Monday's 5-2 win in Game 3 (he stopped 34 of 36 shots). For the Devils to have a chance to even up the series tonight, they'll need their goalie to be rock-solid. He has a 1-0 record with a 1.42 goals-against-average and a .957 save percentage this postseason.
Apr 18 - 6:26 PM

Cory Schneider turned aside 34 of 36 shots in Monday's 5-2 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Believe it or not, this was Schneider's first victory since Dec. 27. He suffered through a significant groin injury and a long losing streak during the second half of the year. Schneider turned aside all 25 shots he faced at even-strength, but he allowed the Lightning to score twice on the power play. Even though they found themselves down 2-1 in the third period, the Devils managed to come back to make this series interesting. Schneider now has a 1-0 record with a 1.42 goals-against-average and a .957 save percentage this postseason. Keith Kinkaid started the first two games of the playoffs, but Schneider will be the go-to guy going forward. The Devils will look to even up the series at two at home on Wednesday night.
Apr 16 - 11:37 PM

Cory Schneider will be between the pipes for the Devils on Monday night in Game 3 versus Tampa Bay.

Keith Kinkaid struggled in the first two games of the series, so Schneider will get his first start since Apr. 7. He made a relief appearance on Saturday in Game 2 and stopped all 10 shots he faced.
Apr 16 - 11:14 AM

Coach John Hynes has decided who will start Monday night against Tampa Bay in Game 3, but he hasn't told his goaltenders yet.

Cory Schneider seems like a good bet to get the nod after he played well in relief on Saturday afternoon. He stopped all 10 shots he faced in relief after Keith Kinkaid was pulled. Kinkaid has been burned for nine goals on 46 shots in two appearances this postseason. Hynes will confirm his starting goalie Monday.
Apr 15 - 2:14 PM

Cory Schneider replaced Keith Kinkaid midway through the second period during Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 2.

Kinkaid was pulled after allowing five goals on 15 shots and Schneider came in and made his presence known right away by picking up an assist on Sami Vatanen's goal just before the end of the second period. Heading back to Jersey in a 2-0 hole, we'd fully expect to see Schneider as the starter for Game 3 on Monday. The 32-year-old netminder stopped all 10 shots he faced in almost a period and a half of play.
Apr 14 - 6:16 PM

Cory Schneider allowed five goals on 26 shots in a 5-3 loss to the Washington Capitals.

The only thing Schneider could say after this performance is that he did not allow Alex Ovechkin to get to 50 goals on the year. The 32-year-old netminder struggled, but that could be understandable considering he hadn't played in a game since March 20th. His record will fall to 17-16-6 with a 2.93 goals-against-average and a .907 save percentage.
Apr 7 - 10:22 PM

The New Jersey Devils have confirmed that Cory Schneider will start tonight against the Washington Capitals.

"I’m excited to play. It’s been a little while but for me it’s about just re-establishing my game and finding a rhythm." said Schneider. "Not trying to think too much about anything. It should be a good challenge tonight." It's been a disaster season for Schneider who lost the starting goaltending job to Keith Kinkaid. Schneider will be highly motivated in tonight's matchup but might have a hard time coming away with a victory considering the Devils will scratch Taylor Hall, Kyle Palmieri, Travis Zajac and Sami Vatanen.
Apr 7 - 1:41 PM

It's not clear when or if Cory Schneider will get another start this season.

Schneider is stuck in a 0-9-2 slump and combined with the time he was sidelined, he hasn't earned a win since Dec. 27. While he's struggled, backup Keith Kinkaid has performed well, giving the Devils every reason to lean on Kinkaid. The Devils need every point they can get right now as they compete in a tight race for a playoff berth. They might not have the luxury of giving Schneider more chances to bounce back.
Mar 23 - 11:17 AM

The New Jersey Devils have not won a game when Cory Schneider starts since December 27.

Schneider was injured for five weeks during the stretch but the Devils are still 0-9-2 since they last won in their first game after Christmas. Schneider gave up four goals on only 14 shots Tuesday in a loss to San Jose before he was pulled just past the halfway mark of the second period. He is 17-15-6 with a 2.88 GAA and a .909 save percentage. He was likely drafted fairly high in your league and has been a disappointment to his owners.
