Mathieu Schneider (born June 12, 1969 in New York City, New York) is an American professional ice hockey defenseman who currently plays for the Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League. Schneider is known as an offensive defenseman and has played with nine teams during his NHL career. He won the Stanley Cup in 1993 with the Montreal Canadiens.

Schneider was born in Manhattan, New York, the first of two sons born to Jewish American parents Sam and Aline. Schneider lived with his family throughout the state of New Jersey until moving to Woonsocket, Rhode Island, for his high school years. In Woonsocket, Schneider attended high school at Mount Saint Charles Academy. Under the tutelage of legendary coach Normand "Bill" Belisle, Schneider and his team won three of the school’s 26 straight regional championships. He left “the Mount” after his junior year and joined the Cornwall Royals of the Ontario Hockey League.

Drafted in the third round of the 1987 NHL Entry Draft, 44th overall, by the Montreal Canadiens, Schneider was the Canadiens' fourth pick (after forwards Andrew Cassels and John LeClair, and fellow defenseman Éric Desjardins). He played his first NHL game a few months later when he suited up on 1987–88 opening night against the Philadelphia Flyers. However, after four games, he was sent back to his junior team (Cornwall Royals) for the rest of the season. He would spend the entirety of 1988–89 with Cornwall before splitting the next season between Montreal and their American Hockey League farm team, the Sherbrooke Canadiens. After being promoted to the Canadiens, he scored seven goals and 21 points in 44 games with Montreal.
