Getting to Know You - Cory Schneider

Our Flavor of the Week - #35- Cory Schneider aka Schneids. Cory is 25 years old and is a very reliable backup goalie for the Canucks. He is from Marblehead, Ma and was drafted by the Canucks in 2004.

Cory Stats -
Cory played 25 games in the 2010/2011 season, winning 16 of those games. He had 1 shutout and got himself 3 points which helped win him and Luongo the William M. Jennings trophy. Cory proved himself to be a mature, hard working, solid backup /tandem goalie this past season and we are lucky to have him on the team. 

Cory Clips - 
Cory Mic'd up for the Win - this video is amazing for so many reasons. Cory says there was a lady screaming into his mic;).. I think he was just so damn excited !
Cory .. or Jannik ? - the vid speaks for itself.. haha
Cory in Action - his confidence shines through. Great saves !

A Few Cory Facts -
In 2009 Cory won the Aldedge Bastien Memorial Award as the AHL's outstanding goalie. Out of all the Canucks players, Cory would least like to face Kes in a shootout.  Cory is a mature guy with an awesome sense of humour and if ever on American Idol his song of choice would be " We Didn't Start the Fire' by Billy Joel.  I wonder .. can Cory dance ?

Due to Corys great goalie skills, he has caused quite the controversy amongst fans over who should be the starting goalie for the Canucks.  I tend to lean with Luo.. and will be posting on this subject in the future :)
