In the article, Schneider reflected on his successful time in the NHL.

I'm at peace with it. I'll miss my teammates and the intensity of playing, but it's the right time for me. New Jersey was a great place for my family and I. My kids were both born there, I had some great teammates, and it was a terrific place to play.

Vancouver was the high point for me,» Schneider said. «They drafted me (in the first round of the 2004 NHL Draft) and the organization had great people, I had great teammates, and we came within one game of brining the city its first Stanley Cup

Schneider played a total of 15 seasons in the NHL with 3 different organizations. As he mentions with Vancouver he came close to winning a Stanley Cup but ultimately fell short. In his successful career, Schneider finished with 410 NHL games played, 171 wins, a 2.43 goals against average, and a 0.918 save percentage.

Cory Schneider had one of the best peaks of any goaltender in the 2010s. He was electric to watch play and steal games. Unfortunately for him, health hindered the longevity of his career. Now though he gets to enjoy retirement and spend more time with his family. We wish Schneider all the best in his post hockey playing days.
