“If everyone is going to start heading over there with bad news,” Schneider told the Vancouver Province last week. “[Jobs] are going to start filling up pretty quickly. It’s something I have to think about more seriously.”
“My agent is out there, talking to teams to see what is available. I haven’t really given him the green light to go and try to find something for sure.”
A story out of Switzerland says EV Zug is reportedly looking to add a locked out NHL goaltender and the obvious choice for the team would be to bring in Anaheim Ducks goaltender Jonas Hiller, who is a Swiss national, but Schneider is also an option.
The Swiss League has rules in place that only allows four foreigners. Schneider, an American, apparently isn’t recognized as a foreigner by the league because his grandmother holds a Swiss passport. This makes him an ideal choice for the club.
On Monday, Schneider’s agent Mike Liut confirmed to News 1130 he has been speaking to a Division 1 team in the Swiss League, but no deal has been made yet and Schneider has yet to make a decision whether to play in Europe or not.
