The Montreal Canadiens have signed defenceman Corey Schueneman to a one-year contract for the 2021-22 season.
The contract will see Schueneman earn $750,000 at the NHL level, while he is set to make $175,000 in the AHL. Schueneman is currently on an AHL contract for the 2020-21 season with the Laval Rocket where he quickly became a big part of the team’s defence.
Schueneman has three goals and four assists in 21 AHL games this season. He is 25 years old and in his second full AHL season. He was previously with the Stockton Heat after graduating from Western Michigan University, where he was captain.
He has seven goals and 22 assists in 71 career AHL games. He is a left-handed shot but has played the right side in Laval as well. He is second among Rocket defencemen in shots on goal with 34. He is someone who can jump up in the play and the team obviously saw enough to give him a well-earned NHL contract.
