Former VJW Standouts Have Sochi Olympics on Their Minds
scheider1_usa.jpgThe 2014 Winter Olympic games are only a year away, but the final three Olympic Qualification tournaments were held earlier this month in Zurich, Switzerland in what was an important four days of hockey for 12 countries. Included in the mix was former VJW Junior A standout Anton Bernard who was hoping to represent Italy in the 2014 Olympics.

Bernard was a rising star for the Warriors during the 2009-10 season as he led the team in scoring with 33 goals and was tied for second in the league with 17 assists. Following a successful junior hockey career, Bernard returned to his home in Italy and enrolled in the university and continued his hockey career. Since that time, Bernard's game has continued to impress.

One year ago, he made his World Championship debut as Italy competed in the Elite Division after earning promotion from Division One the previous season.

Another former VJW player whose name is in the mix to make the United States Olympic team is netminder Cory Schneider, who currently plays for the Vancouver Canucks.

Schneider, who grew up in Marblehead, was part of the VJW youth program and was also trained by Brian Daccord, who currently oversees the netminding program for the VJW program. Schneider’s name has been on the short list of netminders who might be looked upon to represent the United States in Sochi, Russia in just one year’s time.

He has a long and successful history of representing his country. Early in his career, he won gold and silver medals at the 2003 U-18 Junior World Cup and 2004 IIHF World U18 Championships, respectively. He later competed in the 2005 and 2006 World Junior Championships, finishing in fourth with the United States each time.
