Goaltender Cory Schneider among players Canucks send to AHL team

VANCOUVER, B.C. - Goaltender Cory Schneider and former first-round draft pick Michael Grabner were among the players the Vancouver Canucks sent to the AHL's Manitoba Moose on Monday.

Schneider, 23, the AHL goaltender of the year last season with the Moose, had battled with veteran Andrew Raycroft for the backup job behind Roberto Luongo.

Grabner, a forward who the Canucks selected 14th overall in the 2006 draft, was expected to challenge for a spot on the roster but had a disappointing camp.

Among the other players being sent to Winnipeg were defencemen Nolan Baumgartner and Nathan McIver. The forwards were Alexandre Bolduc, Guillame Desbiens, Mario Bliznak and Matt Pope.
