Nedeljkovic named CHL goaltender of the week
Alex Nedeljkovic of the Plymouth Whalers was named the CHL's goaltender of the week.

Alex Nedeljkovic of the Plymouth Whalers of the Ontario Hockey League, one of the top prospects for the 2014 NHL Draft, on Wednesday was named Canadian Hockey League's goaltender of the week for the period ending Sept. 29.

Nedeljkovic made 19 saves in a 4-2 win against the Ottawa 67s on Sept. 27. Two nights later, he stopped 42 of 44 shots in regulation and overtime against the Kingston Frontenacs, and then stopped two of three shots in the shootout as the Whalers beat Kingston 3-2. Nedeljkovic was named First Star of the game for his effort.

In four games this season, the 17-year-old is 2-2-0 with a 2.21 goals-against average and .937 save percentage, both of which rank third in the OHL.

Nedeljkovic is one of 11 players, and the only goaltender, to earn an "A" rating in NHL Central Scouting's preliminary players to watch list for the OHL.

Quote of the Day

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
