The team announced the move Monday, saying Schneider is expected to start skating next week.
Schneider hasn't played since being hurt on Jan. 23 in a game against Boston. He leads the team with a 17-11-6 record with a 2.79 goals-against average.
Forward Nick Lappin was recalled from Binghamton (AHL). He will join the team for a game in Philadelphia on Tuesday.
The Devils announced the NHL awarded Taylor Hall and Will Butcher assists on the team's only goal in a 6-1 loss to Columbus on Saturday. The change, coupled with Hall's goal and assist Sunday night against Boston, extends his point-scoring streak to 14 games. He has nine goals and 12 assists during the streak.
