Former Detroit Red Wings defenseman Mathieu Schneider is among four people who have been elected to the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame, it was announced Monday.
He’s joined by Ron DeGregorio of USA Hockey, former NHL forward Chris Drury and four-time Olympic medalist Angela Ruggiero.
The Red Wings were among 10 teams Schneider played for during 21 NHL seasons.
Schneider spent all or parts of four seasons with the Red Wings after being acquired on March 11, 2003 in a trade that saw the Red Wings send Sean Avery, Maxim Kuznetsov and a first-round draft pick to the Los Angeles Kings.
In 231 regular-season games with the Red Wings, Schneider had 48 goals, 116 assists and 224 penalty minutes.
In 33 playoff games, he had four goals, 13 assists 36 PIM. Schneider’s plus-33 rating in 2005-06 ranked fifth in the NHL.
