Vancouver Canucks goaltender Cory Schneider practiced with his new Swiss League team on Thursday and will make his first start for Ambri-Piotta on Saturday against Kloten.
Schneider held a news conference after the practice and was startled by some kind of explosion from a nearby mine. "What the hell was that?" Schneider asked. "Ah ' I forgot to warn you," a team official deadpanned. "We are at war."
