2010-11: Appeared in all 37 games for the Huskies as a freshman, leading UConn with 33 points (13 goals, 20 assists). His 33 points set a new school D-I record in rookie scoring. Schneider finished the season ranked second among all rookies in Atlantic Hockey with 26 points (11 goals, 15 assists) in 27 conference games en route to earning a spot on the Atlantic Hockey All-Rookie team. Schneider was also named to the All-Tournament team after posting a goal and an assist in the conference tournament semi-finals versus RIT on March 18.
2011-12: Appeared in 38 games as a sophomore, leading the team for the second consecutive season with 45 points (23 goals, 22 assists) in 38 games. His 45 points and 23 goals both were new school D-I single season records. He was recently named to the All-Atlantic Hockey First Team after leading the conference with 16 goals in 26 games. His 30 points currently rank tied for second in the Atlantic Hockey. Schneider is just the third player in the program's history, and the second in the Division I era, to sign with an NHL team.
Schneider is a power forward with good size that really excels around the net. He possesses good net presence and is willing to pay a price to score goals. Many of his scores have come as a result of his around, whether they are tip-ins, off deflections or rebounds. While Schneider is not an overly physical player, he has shown a willingness to play the body when necessary. The added size that Schneider gained over the summer prior to his sophomore season has vastly improved his ability to fend off opposing defenders, protect the puck and work more effectively in areas such as the corners and boards.
He is an excellent skater with good speed that can drive hard to the net. And along with his great on-ice vision and stick work, Schneider has the ability to make things happen whenever he's on the ice, whether it is in scoring goals or setting plays.
While Schneider's defensive side is good, it is also one of his weakest areas. He is a very good shot-blocker, but needs to be able to make quicker decisions, especially in the transition game to be effective at the pro level.
Schneider signed a two-year contract with the Senators and will play in the AHL for the 2012-13 season.
