Cory Schneider's NHL return ends quickly

The NHL return of goaltender Cory Schneider of the New Jersey Devils was short-lived. After starting just one game between the pipes, Schneider and his $6 million per year contract have been sent back to Binghamton of the AHL

Schneider was called up about a week ago after being sent to the AHL in early November. He saw action in three straight games for the Devils. It didn't go well, to put it mildly. His first game as a starter was Saturday night against Columbus where he let in four of 17 shots for a .765 save percentage. He stopped 46 of 54 shots over the course of three games for a .851 save percentage. Because he was only up for three games, Schneider does not have to clear waivers to be sent down again. It's unlikely there'd be any teams looking at taking the chance on him and the two years left on his contract after this season ends, anyway.



This may not be Schneider's last chance. New Jersey just started its bye-week so it is possible that they sent the netminder down to get more action in the minors. However, given the results of his recent call up, it's doubtful he gets too many more unless something changes quickly. Schneider has seen action in eight AHL games this season, accumulating a 3.00 GAA and .894 save percentage. That's a far cry from what is needed to get back to being a starter in the NHL.

Do you think Schneider will get another start in New Jersey this season?
