Goaltender Cory Schneider (Marblehead, Mass.) will forego his senior season at Boston College to pursue a professional hockey career, according to BC head coach Jerry York.

Schneider, who led Boston College to the national championship game in each of the last two seasons, played in 99 games during his three-year collegiate career. He posted a 66-26-7 record (.702 winning percentage), registered a 2.09 goals against average and a .925 save percentage.

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

"I've truly enjoyed each of my three seasons at BC and want to thank Coach York, his staff and the fans for everything they have done." Schneider said. "It's been my goal to move on to the next phase of my career and I'm excited to now be a part of the Vancouver Canucks organization."

Schneider holds the Boston College record for career shutouts (15) as well as single-season school marks for shutouts (eight, 2005-06) and saves (1111, 2006-07).

He earned Hockey East All-Academic team honors in each of his three years at BC.
