Penguins' Alex Nedeljkovic: Tough-luck loss
Nedeljkovic stopped 31 of 33 shots in a 2-1 overtime loss to Philadelphia on Monday.
Nedeljkovic has now made at least 30 saves in each of his first five starts, but he has a mediocre 2-2-1 record to go along with his superb 2.18 GAA and .937 save percentage. Under other circumstances, his stellar play would at least earn him more frequent starts, but that might not happen behind Tristan Jarry, who is doing well in his own right with a 2.47 GAA and a .918 save percentage through 18 contests. It's plausible Jarry will start Wednesday in Tampa Bay and Friday in Florida, though the goaltenders will then likely split the back-to-back games versus Arizona and Montreal on Dec. 12-13....

Nedeljkovic allowed three goals on 34 shots in Friday's 3-2 road loss against the Sabres.

Jeff Skinner beat Nedeljkovic for a power-play goal at 5:13 of the final frame before Kyle Okposo and Alex Tuch notched goals in the second half of the third to give the Sabres a comeback victory.

Nedeljkovic made 38 saves in Sunday's 3-0 shutout win over the Golden Knights.

The 27-year-old netminder is 2-1-0 with a .944 save percentage and 2.00 GAA through his first three starts with Pittsburgh. Tristan Jarry will likely start Wednesday's contest vs. the Rangers, though the Penguins play three times in four days in the coming week, so Nedeljkovic should start at least one game....

Penguins' Alex Nedeljkovic: Back in NHL
Nedeljkovic (lower body) was recalled from his conditioning stint Saturday, Mark Divver of the New England Hockey Journal reports.
It was a memorable stint in the AHL as Nedeljkovic scored his second career goal Friday, becoming the first netminder in AHL history to score twice. Nedeljkovic made only one start in the AHL, stopping 17 shots in a 4-2 win over Providence.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Alex Nedeljkovic: On conditioning loan
Nedeljkovic (lower body) was loaned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton for a conditioning assignment Thursday.
Nedeljkovic is eligible to return from long-term injured reserve Sunday versus Vegas.

Penguins' Alex Nedeljkovic: Taking shots Wednesday
Nedeljkovic (lower body) faced some shots at Wednesday's practice session, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Nedeljkovic won't be an option for the Penguins' next two contests but is eligible to be activated off injured reserve ahead of Sunday's clash with Vegas. The Penguins have an upcoming back-to-back against the Hurricanes and Golden Knights on Saturday and Sunday, respectively, which would be a prime opportunity for Nedeljkovic to make his return to the crease. If Ned can't play, fantasy players can expect Magnus Hellberg to start one of those two games.... See More ... See Less

Penguins' Alex Nedeljkovic: On IR
Nedeljkovic (lower body) was placed on long-term injured reserve Wednesday, per CapFriendly.
Nedeljkovic sustained the injury during Tuesday's 4-1 loss to Dallas. With his placement on LTIR, he'll be out for a minimum of 10 games and 24 days, meaning he won't return until Nov. 19 versus Vegas at the earliest. Pittsburgh currently doesn't have a second healthy goaltender on its roster, so it will need to call up a netminder, possibly Magnus Hellberg, to presumably serve as the backup to Tristan Jarry for Thursday's contest against the Avalanche....

Penguins' Alex Nedeljkovic: Falls to Stars
Nedeljkovic made 30 saves in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Stars.
After keeping Dallas off the scoreboard in the first period, things began to fall apart for Nedeljkovic in the second after a Jason Robertson tally, and the 27-year-old Nedeljkovic played with little control in the third. Nedeljkovic's numbers through two starts are solid and include a .914 save percentage, but he's unlikely to push Tristan Jarry for the starting role any time soon with performances like this one....

Penguins' Alex Nedeljkovic: Dealing with lower-body injury
Although Nedeljkovic was in net for the entirety of Tuesday's 4-1 loss to Dallas, he sustained a lower-body injury during the contest, per Rob Rossi of The Athletic.
Nedeljkovic attempted to practice Wednesday, but he left before the morning skate's conclusion. He has a 1-1-0 record, 3.00 GAA and .914 save percentage in two games this season. Tristan Jarry might get the home start Thursday versus Colorado regardless, but if Nedeljkovic isn't available then Pittsburgh will need to call up a goaltender to fill in against the Avalanche....

Nedeljkovic will get the starting nod at home versus Dallas on Tuesday.

In his prior outing this campaign, the 27-year-old Nedeljkovic stopped 34 of 36 shots against the Flames in a winning effort, something Pittsburgh hasn't done since.
