Schneider invited to U.S. Olympic camp
The Devils acquired Schneider at the NHL Draft on June 30.
Devils goaltender Cory Schneider on Monday was named one of 48 players invited to Team USA's Orientation Camp slated for Aug. 26-27 at Kettler Capitals IcePlex in Arlington, Va.

The camp, which will not involve on-ice practice, is the first step in selecting the team that will represent the U.S. at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Players will take part in team-building activities, meetings with coaches, and off-ice workouts.

Schneider, 27, has represented the U.S. in international play before. He won gold with the U.S. at the 2003 U-18 Junior World Cup and added silver at the IIHF World U18 Champsionship in 2004.

The native of Marblehead, Mass., was also part of fourth-place U.S. finishes at the IIHF World Junior Championship in 2005 and 2006.

Sixteen of the 48 players chosen were part of the United States team that won the silver medal in 2010 in Vancouver. Among that group is Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise, whose goal in the final seconds of regulation in the gold-medal game against Canada forced overtime.

Also returning from four years ago is Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller, who was named the Olympic tournament's best goaltender and most valuable player.

Other players from the 2010 team that will be at the camp are goaltender Jonathan Quick (Los Angeles Kings); defensemen Erik Johnson (Colorado Avalanche), Jack Johnson (Columbus Blue Jackets), Brooks Orpik (Pittsburgh Penguins) and Ryan Suter (Wild); and forwards David Backes (St. Louis Blues), Dustin Brown (Kings), Ryan Callahan (New York Rangers), Patrick Kane (Chicago Blackhawks), Ryan Kesler (Vancouver Canucks), Phil Kessel (Toronto Maple Leafs), Joe Pavelski (San Jose Sharks), Bobby Ryan (Ottawa Senators) and Paul Stastny (Colorado Avalanche).

Joining Schneider, Miller and Quick in goal will be Craig Anderson (Avalanche), John Gibson (Anaheim Ducks), and Jimmy Howard (Detroit Red Wings).

Gibson, who helped the United States win the bronze medal at the 2013 IIHF World Championship, is one of three players invited to the camp with no NHL experience -- he played one American Hockey League game last season. Also invited are defensemen Jacob Trouba, the Winnipeg Jets' top pick in the 2012 NHL Draft who likely will make his NHL debut this season, and Seth Jones, the fourth pick of the 2013 NHL Draft by the Nashville Predators.

Dan Bylsma of the Pittsburgh Penguins will coach the team at the Olympic tournament, which runs Feb. 12-23.
