Schneider Sent Home

Duncan McGovern is the backup tonight.

Lethbridge announcers just mentioned that the Tigers sent Nick Schneider home. At this point I haven't heard anything else about this situation.

Schneiders last game he let in 4 goals in 8 minutes after Bulllion was pulled against Red Deer. This situation is bizzare.

Edit: The MH News article stated it was for medical reasons.

I heard the same thing. Does that mean he is at home in Medicine Hat or back in his hometown.

Sucks for schneider and the Tigers, but the way he is playing, it's probably the right call. I'm sure the Tigers wish he was playing like is capable of, but i think their hands are tied on this one.

Not sure.

But after seeing he was pulled after a 2nd shorthanded goal, I get a bad feeling about it.

Heard he was sent home to rest. I think he's had lots of rest, needs to reset mentally. Bullion came in and worked his ass off and stole the #1 job. Bullion continues to work his ass off and Schneider just looks like he could careless. Has a contract now, thinks his work is done in the WHL. I was unsure of the Bullion pickup at first, but now I love it. He's been stellar, but I think his work ethic has contributed to the whole team.

Those shorthanded goals were than less an minute apart. Yeah not good and bizarre he's not with the team.

Any word on Rubins and Schultz? See they both still listed as week to week. Think there is any chance of getting them back for 2nd round of playoffs?

This was in the news. I think Schneider was sent home to get his head in line. http://medicinehatnews.com/sports/local-sports/2017/03/18/triple-digits/

Clouston confirmed that Schneider has gone home for medical reasons but is anticipated to return for playoffs.

Schneider has mononucleosis.

Oh man, mono is not something you want in the room. Hope no one else has it. Has he had mono for a while? Can last a reasonable amount of time, like months. Why would they bring him back and risk him infecting others? Feel bad for him, has battled through playing and practicing. Clearly not helping his game or confidence. Poor guy, hope he gets better soon!

Schneider has had more then mono this season. He has been battling through a hell of a lot of illnesses. He has been a complete team player while battling a lot on his own. Here is hoping he can get well and get back into form!

Also heard that Nick also has had shingles and has battled dehydration. And anon 6:06 is right he's been the good soldier through all of this. Most likely has lost his starting job and set his career back because of it. Those making comments about his lack of caring because he has a contract should shut it if they don't know wtf they're talking about.

Hobbs wins Dman of the year in the east. I know knowbody knows what exactly happened when he was here but the fact that he is now on very good team in Regina hurts a little.

Anyone noticed that the Tigers players get little credit from the league this year. Our guys rarely get recognised as player of the week/month, goalie of the week/month and have little features in the plays of the week. I find it so strange for a team that was top in the division and close to top in the league that they get so little acknowledgement.
