Breaking: Goaltender Cory Schneider, the Marblehead native who played for the Canucks, Devils and Islanders, tells me he's retiring from pro hockey after 16 seasons. The 37-year-old former NHL all-star won 171 games in his career and reached the Cup Final with Vancouver in 2011.

Schneider had a long and successful career that began in Vancouver. He was slated to be the successor to Roberto Luongo and showed great promise in his early years.
He was then traded to the New Jersey Devils where he would blossom and become a starter. After 5 successful seasons with the Devils, injuries began to take hold of his career.
After a couple more seasons in New Jersey, he would head to the Islanders where he would struggle to find consistency through injuries. He played 33 games last season in the AHL with the Bridgeport Islanders and finally looked like he might be on track for another NHL shot.
Instead, he is hanging up his skates and calling it a career. Schneider finishes with 410 NHL games played, a 2.43 goals-against average, and a 0.918 save percentage.
Injuries robbed NHL history of a long potentially historic run as the top NHL goaltender for Cory Schneider. His career was still a success and something to be proud of as he rides off into the sunset of retirement.
