SENS SNIPPETS…

The Ottawa Senators signed forward Cole Schneider to a two-year entry-level contract on Wednesday of this week. Schneider will sign an amateur try-out agreement and report to the Binghamton Senators on Monday.

Schneider's collegiate season came to an end last Sunday when his University of Connecticut Huskies fell 4-3 to Air Force in Game 3 of the best-of-three Atlantic Hockey Association quarter-finals. Schneider scored twice in the game to improve his season total to 23 goals, establishing a new single-season record for goals by a UConn player. He also finished the year with 45 points to set a UConn single-season record and his 78 points after two seasons are more than any sophomore has recorded in UConn Division I history.

During his just-completed sophomore season, the 6-2, 185-pound native of Williamsville, N.Y., led the Huskies in scoring for the second consecutive campaign, recording 23 goals and 22 assists in 38 games. On March 13 he was named Atlantic Hockey Association Player of the Week after registering six points on three goals and three assists in last week's AHA Quarterfinal series at Air Force.
