Devils acquire Cory Schneider

The Devils have made the biggest splash of the 2013 NHL Draft at Prudential Center, acquiring coveted goaltender Cory Schneider from Vancouver in exchange for the ninth-overall pick.

Schneider, 27, posted a 17-9-4 record last season with a 2.11 goals-against average, .927 save percentage and five shutouts. In 2011-12, he notched a career-best 20 wins with a 1.96 GAA and three shutots in 33 appearances.

The Marblehead, Mass., native owns a career mark of 55-26-8 with a 2.20 GAA, .927 save percentage and nine shutouts in 98 games.
