Future Watch: Alex Nedeljkovic Rookie Hockey Cards, Hurricanes – Alex Nedeljkovic was drafted 37th overall by the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. The Parma, Ohio native has a hard name to spell, but he’ll make you learn it based on the quality of his play.
He had three solid seasons in net for the now defunct Plymouth Whalers of the OHL. In those three seasons he had two playoff appearances. He also nabbed OHL goaltender of the year honors in 2013-14.
In International play he shined with the 2013-14 U18 team posting a 1.84 GAA and a .902 save percentage and he got a gold medal for his great effort. The next two seasons he made the U20 team and he was a big star at the 2015-16 World Junior Championships. That year he posted a 1.66 GAA and a crazy .943 save percentage.
In 2016-17 he turned pro and played 25 games for the Charlotte Checkers in the AHL. He also played 12 games in the ECHL for the Florida Everblades due to a congested goaltending surplus in the system at the time. In mid-January of 2017 he got his first NHL action. He ended up relieving incumbent starter Cam Ward against his home state Columbus Blue Jackets. He made all 17 saves that night in over 30 minutes of work.
