Hurricanes' Alex Nedeljkovic: Added for postseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nedeljkovic is with the Hurricanes for the start of Phase 3 training camp, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

Nedeljkovic saw action in four games for Carolina this season, in which he went 1-2-1 with a 3.06 GAA and .887 save percentage. In the postseason, the 24-year-old netminder is unlikely to log any minutes but should compete for the backup job heading into the 2020-21 campaign.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nedeljkovic was sent down to AHL Charlotte on Monday, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nedeljkovic made 28 saves in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Penguins.

After getting beaten twice in the first period, Nedeljkovic shut the door on Pittsburgh and let the Carolina offense get to work.

Hurricanes' Alex Nedeljkovic: Set for road start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nedeljkovic will tend the road twine in Sunday's matchup against Pittsburgh, Sara Civian of The Athletic reports.

The 24-year-old will make another start with netminders James Reimer (lower body) and Petr Mrazek (concussion) missing time. Nedeljkovic has gone 0-2-1 at the NHL level this season along witha 3.46 GAA and .866 save percentage. He'll face a tough matchup against a Penguins offense that ranks 10th in the league in goals per game (3.19).

Hurricanes' Alex Nedeljkovic: Cookie crumbles in third period
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nedeljkovic made 28 saves in a 4-1 loss to Philadelphia on Thursday night.

The game was close -- just 2-0 heading into the third before the Canes put up a goal at the 2:55 mark. But Ned's game crumbled in the third, as he allowed two goals in just 26 seconds. Nedeljkovic has had a tough time replicating his strong AHL play in the NHL. Bench him for now -- you don't need to hold your breath every time he's in your net.

Hurricanes' Alex Nedeljkovic: Starting in Philadelphia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nedeljkovic will guard the road goal during Thursday's clash with the Flyers,'s Adam Kimelman reports.

Nedeljkovic was sharp in his last appearance Saturday against Montreal, stopping 18 of 19 shots after replacing Anton Forsberg in the second period of the contest, but despite his efforts to spur a comeback, he was ultimately saddled with the 4-3 overtime loss. He'll have to play lights out in order to have a shot at picking up the second win of his young NHL career Thursday, as he'll be entering a brutal road matchup with a sizzling-hot Philadelpha team that's won seven straight games.

Hurricanes' Alex Nedeljkovic: Strong in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nedeljkovic made 18 saves and allowed one goal in relief in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Canadiens on Saturday.

He only allowed the OT snipe, which means he takes the loss. Ned is the more talented of the Canes' goaltending duo, but the team will clearly roll with the hot hand while Petr Mrazek and James Reimer are out. Nedeljkovic and Anton Forsberg need to be owned together to keep your team ready to adjust to the prevailing winds in Raleigh.

Hurricanes' Alex Nedeljkovic: Gets rude welcome from Stars
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nedeljkovic gave up four goals on only 16 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Stars.

Dallas beat the young netminder three times on seven shots in the first period of his season debut, and while Nedeljkovic wasn't particularly to blame for any of them and bounced back over the final 40 minutes, Carolina couldn't mount a comeback. With Petr Mrazek (concussion) and James Reimer (lower body) both on the shelf with no timetable for their returns, Nedeljkovic will split time in net with Anton Forsberg -- who hasn't seen any NHL action since 2017-18 -- for Carolina.

Hurricanes' Alex Nedeljkovic: Making season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nedeljkovic will defend the blue paint during Tuesday's home game versus the Stars,'s Kurt Dusterberg reports.

Nedeljkovic has been decent in the minors this season, compiling a 15-10-2 record while posting a 2.51 GAA and .905 save percentage in 28 appearances. The 24-year-old American will attempt to secure the third win of his young NHL career in a home matchup with a Dallas club that's gone 17-10-4 on the road this year.

Hurricanes' Alex Nedeljkovic: Summoned to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nedeljkovic was promoted from AHL Charlotte on Sunday.

After James Reimer (lower body) and Petr Mrazek (upper body) were both injured in Saturday's win over Toronto, the Hurricanes were forced to call up two goalies from the minors. Nedeljkovic has registered a .905 save percentage and 2.51 GAA in 28 AHL contests this season. If Mrazek isn't able to go Tuesday, the 24-year-old may get the starting nod against Dallas.

Hurricanes' Alex Nedeljkovic: Lands two-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nedeljkovic signed a two-year, $1.475 million contract extension with Carolina on Friday.

Nedeljkovic's deal will turn into a one-way contract ahead of the 2020-21 campaign, so it appears the 'Canes may have found their long-term answer between the pipes. The club will likely allow the 23-year-old to spend another year in the minors developing his game, but that may depend on whether it can re-sign Petr Mrazek and/or Curtis McElhinney.

Hurricanes' Alex Nedeljkovic: Rights remain with Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nedeljkovic received a qualifying offer from the Hurricanes on Tuesday, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.

The 2014 second-rounder could be ready to make the move to a full-time NHL role after winning AHL goaltender of the year last season. Regardless of where he ends up this season, retaining Nedeljkovic's rights was an easy decision for the Hurricanes.

Hurricanes' Alex Nedeljkovic: Gets the call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nedeljkovic was recalled from AHL Charlotte on Monday.

After starting goaltender Petr Mrazek left Game 2 with a lower-body issue, the team elected for a reinforcement in the form of Nedeljkovic. The 23-year-old was recently crowned AHL goaltender of the year, recording 34 wins along with a 2.26 GAA and .916 save percentage. If Mrazek can't go Wednesday, expect Nedeljkovic to serve as the backup behind Curtis McElhinney.

Hurricanes' Alex Nedeljkovic: Continues to dominate AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nedeljkovic stopped all 22 shots he faced in AHL Charlotte's 4-0 shutout of Lehigh Valley.

Nedeljkovic was named AHL Goaltender of the Month in January and his strong play has continued in February and March. His 28 wins lead the league and he is fifth in GAA at a sparkling 2.37. While the duo of Petr Mrazek and Curtis McElhinney have given Carolina better goaltending this season than they could have possibly imagined, that job is going to be Nedeljkovic's before long. The 2014 second-round selection (37th overall) should spend a good portion of the 2019-20 campaign in the NHL.

Hurricanes' Alex Nedeljkovic: Top AHL netminder in January
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nedeljkovic has been named the AHL's Goaltender of the Month for January.

Nedeljkovic, who now leads all AHL netminders in wins with 21, posted a perfect 6-0-0 record for the Charlotte Checkers in January, along with two shutouts, a sparkling 1.78 GAA and a save percentage of .937. The 23-year-old netminder also made his first NHL start for the Canes recently, picking up a win over the Canucks on Jan. 23. Nedeljkovic is going to look awfully good in a Carolina uniform someday -- perhaps as early as next season -- but for now, he remains No. 3 on the depth chart behind Petr Mrazek and Curtis McElhinney.

Hurricanes' Alex Nedeljkovic: Secures first NHL win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nedeljkovic made 24 of 26 possible saves versus Vancouver on Wednesday and registered his first NHL victory. Following the game, the netminder was reassigned to AHL Charlotte.

With Curtis McElhinney (lower body) still sidelined and Petr Mrazek having played Tuesday, the club opted to give Nedeljkovic a shot between the pipes. The netminder's performance showed why the club took him with the 37th overall pick in the 2014 NHL Draft. While the Ohio native will likely spend the bulk of the 2018-19 campaign in the minors, he should compete for a spot on the 23-man roster during training camp in the fall.

Hurricanes' Alex Nedeljkovic: Making first NHL start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nedeljkovic will make his first NHL start in Wednesday's road game against the Canucks, Alec Campbell of 99.9 The Fan reports.

Nedeljkovic has been decent in the minors this season, maintaining a 2.68 GAA and .903 save percentage through 30 appearances. The 2014 second-round pick will look to pick up his first career NHL victory in a road matchup with a middling Vancouver offense that's averaging 3.13 goals per game at home this campaign, 15th in the NHL.

Hurricanes' Alex Nedeljkovic: Called up from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nedeljkovic was recalled from AHL Charlotte on Thursday.

Nedeljkovic has posted an impressive 20-5-0 record in 30 AHL appearances this season. With Curtis McElhinney day-to-day with a lower-body injury, Carolina needed to shore up its crease in the event he misses an extended period. Nedeljkovic has only one NHL start under his belt.

Hurricanes' Alex Nedeljkovic: Posts shutout for AHL Charlotte
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nedeljkovic stopped all 34 shot in AHL Charlotte's 5-0 win over Toronto on Sunday.

Nedeljkovic spent a couple days with the Hurricanes in early December but did not get into a game. The combination of Petr Mrazek and Curtis McElhinney has been (as expected) thoroughly underwhelming for Carolina, and it's possible Nedeljkovic could earn some starts for the club down the stretch. The 23-year-old second-round (2014) selection is sporting a 2.72 GAA and .901 save percentage through his first 26 games for the Checkers.

Hurricanes' Alex Nedeljkovic: Drops to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Hurricanes reassigned Nedeljkovic to AHL Charlotte on Saturday, TSN reports.

With Curtis McElhinney (lower body) on injured reserve, the Hurricanes recalled Scott Darling to serve as Petr Mrazek's backup and sent Nedeljkovic back to minors. Nedeljkovic has been unimpressive with Charlotte this year, recording an .890 save percentage. He'll head back down without making his NHL debut.
