Devils goalie Cory Schneider puts N.J. home on market for $2.9M (PHOTOS)

The 32-year-old goaltender is signed until 2022.

New Jersey Devils goaltender Cory Schneider, who inked a seven-year, $42 million contract in 2014 to stay with the team, put his 6,900-square-foot Short Hills home on the market Wednesday for just under $2.9 million, according to its Trulia listing.

Schneider, and his wife, Jill, bought the home in 2015 for just over $2.8 million, according to property records. The 32-year-old goalie has been on the Devils since he was traded to the franchise from the Vancouver Canucks in 2013.

Located on half an acre in ritzy Short Hills, the 2015-built home has six bedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms and has “a fabulous modern vibe for today’s lifestyle,” according to the listing.

On the first floor, the home has a chef’s kitchen that is adjoined by a breakfast area and a butler’s pantry that has a wet bar and wine fridge.

The master suite, which has a gas fireplace and a marble bathroom with a steam shower and heated floors, is on the second floor, as are four other bedrooms, according to the listing.

The home also has various entertainment options. The basement level of the home features a recreation room, an exercise room, a full bathroom and a humidity-controlled wine cellar. The private backyard has a fire pit and an outdoor kitchen.

According to property records, the home was last assessed at $2.98 million. Property taxes for the home were $47,560 in 2017.

After making the All-Star game in 2016, Schneider had an up-and-down, injury-plagued 2017-18 season in which a groin injury suffered in January sidelined him after a solid start to the season.

Devils coach John Hynes elected to start Keith Kinkaid over Schneider in the first two games of the opening round against the Tampa Bay Lightning in the team’s first playoff appearance since 2011. Schneider relieved Kinkaid in Game 2 of the series before starting the next three in a 4-1 series loss to the Lightning.

Earlier this month, Schneider underwent surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left hip.

Schneider has made over $33 million in his nine-year NHL career, according to Spotrac.com. He and his wife have two young children.
