TORONTO -- Former defenceman Mathieu Schneider has joined the NHL Players' Association as a special assistant, the union announced Wednesday.

Schneider, a 20-year veteran who retired after last season, will work with executive director Don Fehr.

"I am pleased to have Mathieu join the NHLPA's staff," Fehr said in a release. "His vast experience as an NHL player and as an active member in his association will make Mathieu a great addition to the staff and an exceptional asset for the players."

Schneider scored 223 goals and had 520 assists in a career spanning 1,289 NHL games with Montreal, the New York Rangers, New York Islanders, Toronto, Los Angeles, Detroit, Anaheim, Atlanta, Vancouver and Phoenix.

He won a Stanley Cup with Montreal in 1993 and was a two-time all-star. The 41-year-old had already served several roles with the union before accepting his new job.

"Now that my playing career is over, I'm very excited to have the opportunity to continue to work on behalf of the players," said Schneider.

"I plan on drawing from my own understanding of the NHLPA and the game to help ensure that the players are educated on all matters relating to the association and the collective bargaining agreement."
