Steve Kasper and Cory Schneider are two of the most well-known past participants in the St. Lambert exchange, and they have graciously offered to participate in a written question-and-answer session with the current St. Lambert and Marblehead players. The questions and the answers will then be published in a commemorative book for the 50th anniversary celebration.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Your player asks questions to Steve and Cory about any subject, including their background (e.g., favorite foods, pets), youth hockey experience (when did you begin playing, what was your favorite position), their memories of the exchange, their experience after youth hockey, playing in the NHL (Steve also coached in the NHL), and any advice they may have for our players. Your player should ask questions to both Steve and Cory, and there’s no limit to the numbers of questions that your player can submit.
  1. MYHA and St. Lambert will select 20 broad range questions for Steve and Cory to answer. (Given the size of the program, it will not be possible to have all questions answered). The questions (with the name and team of the player who asked) and answers will then be published in the book and program.
  1. Please send your questions (with player’s full name, age, and team) to stlambert@marbleheadyouthhockey.com. Please send the questions by October 6th.

 

For further information, please contact Bill Shull at bkshull@verizon.net

We look forward to some entertaining and thoughtful questions. Steve and Cory are looking forward to your questions.

 

Sincerely,

MYHA Board of Directors

About Steve Kasper and Cory Schneider

 

Steve Kasper is a Saint-Lambert native who played in the NHL from 1980 to 1993, including nine seasons with the Boston Bruins. Kasper was the winner of the Selke trophy (1982) for the best defensive forward, and he served as the head coach of the Boston Bruins in the 1995-1997. Kasper played in the exchange in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

 

Cory Schneider, a Marblehead native, had a successful career at Boston College and was a first-round draft pick with the Vancouver Canucks. As a Canuck, he and fellow goaltender Roberto Luongo won the William Jennings Trophy in 2010-2011 for the lowest combined goals against average. The following year, Cory led the NHL in shutouts. He is the current goaltender for the New Jersey Devils. Schneider played in the exchange in the early 1990s.
