The New Jersey Devils re-signed goaltender Cory Schneider to a seven-year, $42 million contract extension on Wednesday. He had one year remaining on his current deal at $4 million.

Last season, the 28-year-old Schneider posted a 16-15-12 record with a 1.97 goals against average and 0.921 save percentage with three shutouts.

He spent the first five years of his career with the Vancouver Canucks battling for playing time with Roberto Luongo. Vancouver traded Schneider to the Devils at the 2013 Draft.

In 143 career games with the Canucks and Devils, Schneider has a 71-41-20 record with a 2.12 GAA and a .925 save percentage with 12 shutouts.

The American was selected by the Canucks in the first round (26th overall) of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.
