Cory Schneider Interview - 2011 Stanley Cup Final

After Game 5 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Final between the Vancouver Canucks and the Boston Bruins we caught up with Jennings winning backup goaltender Cory Schneider to discuss the club's statistical anomaly and not-so-secret weapon, red headed players. These are his stories.

Q: Have you ever played with so many redheads on the same team?
A: No I haven’t. Yeah, it’s been pointed out a few times. We’ll take it. Seems to be working for us.

Q: Do you count Jannik Hansen as a redhead?
A: No, not even close.

Q: Come on.
A: No, it’s just the twins.

Q: What about Victor Oreskovich?
A: Meh, red facial hair. We’ll take Bolduc, I think he counts. I don’t know about Vic though. We’re very strict.

Q: Alright, Victor Oreskovich and Jannik Hansen aside there's still you, Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin, Alex Bolduc, Raffi Torres, cameraman Rory McGarry, and equipment manager Brian "Red" Hamilton. It’s a little strange, right? I mean approximately one percent of the world's population has red hair yet over twenty percent of this team does.
A: I think it’s great. It’s worked for us so far. So let’s get more in here. Let’s get Mike Commodore in here.

Many thanks to Cory for speaking with us.
