|Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
With both Marty Brodeur and Mike Dunham ahead of him, Schwab saw plenty of work with the Utica Devils in the
early 90s and the Albany River Rats in the mid-90s.
It was clear by the time he saw an NHL game that there was just no room for him, so he was traded to the Lightning so
he could see more NHL work, even if it meant playing on a terrible team.
That 95-96 season had an eventful moment for him, though. He got into a fight with Isles' goalie Tommy Soderstrom in
one game. It got him ejected.
He would continue to bounce around, both in the NHL and in the minors, until he returned to the Devils in time to see
him win a Stanley Cup.
His career would end in a most unfortunate of ways. He suffered a groin injury in practice in January of 2004, one of the
many he had throughout his career, and the second that season. The game against Washington two nights before was his
last of the season as a result.
He had went back with the Lightning in 2005 to serve as a goaltending development coach for 3 seasons. After leaving
there, he joined the San Jose Sharks in the same capacity, staying with them until 2015. After the Sharks let him go,
he joined the Arizona Coyotes, again in the same capacity. (Although his official title is prospect goaltending coach.)
