Cole Schneider (born August 26, 1990) is an American professional ice hockey player who currently plays in the Ottawa Senators (NHL) organization. After leaving the University of Connecticut in 2012, he began his pro career with the Binghamton Senators of the American Hockey League (AHL), Ottawa's top farm team.
Schneider attended the University of Connecticut where he played two seasons of college hockey under the legendary coach Bruce Marshall, with the NCAA Division I Connecticut Huskies men's ice hockey team. In his freshman year, Schneider was selected to the All-AHA Rookie Team, and in his sophomore year his outstanding play was rewarded with a selection to the 2011-12 All-AHA First Team. Schneider posted 23 goals and 45 points in his sophomore season — both school records — and he became just the third University of Connecticut product to sign an NHL contract.
On March 14, 2012, the Ottawa Senators signed Schneider as a free agent to a two-year entry-level contract. Shortly after signing with Ottawa, Schneider made his professional debut with the American Hockey League's Binghamton Senators and subsequently recorded two assists in 11 games to close out the 2011-12 season.
