2021 Fantasy Outlook
With Carolina's goaltending situation in shambles, Nedeljkovic came out of nowhere to run away with the No. 1 job. He posted a 15-5-3 record along with a 1.90 GAA and a .932 save percentage on his way to being named a Calder Trophy finalist and to the NHL's All-Rookie Team. The penny-pinching Hurricanes then shocked the hockey world by dealing Nedeljkovic to Detroit for a draft pick this past July. He immediately signed a new two-year, $6 million deal with the Wings and should serve as the team's starter ahead of Thomas Greiss moving forward. Just keep in mind moving from Carolina to Detroit is a major downgrade in terms of fantasy production and Nedeljkovic's numbers are likely to suffer as a result. Read Past Outlooks

Lets lead slip away
GDetroit Red Wings
October 14, 2021
Nedeljkovic surrendered seven goals on 48 shots in Thursday's 7-6 overtime loss to the Lightning.
ANALYSIS
Nedeljkovic had a three-goal lead to protect midway through the third period, but the Lightning caught up and then dominated overtime to spoil his Red Wings debut. The 25-year-old won't always face such a relentless opponent, but wins may be hard to come by on a team still in rebuilding mode. The Ohio native figures to split time with Thomas Greiss this season, although Nedeljkovic is more likely to emerge as the primary goalie. The Red Wings' next game is Saturday versus the Canucks.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2016
Nedeljkovic produced well at the AHL level last year, going 16-10-2 with a 2.49 GAA and a .906 save percentage in 29 games. He also made four appearances at the NHL level, although they were nothing to write home about. The 24-year-old remains third on the Hurricanes' goalie depth chart, as Petr Mrazek and James Reimer are again set to split the NHL duties in 2020-21. Look for Nedeljkovic to earn a spot on the taxi squad, and if he doesn't stick there, he'll likely be the primary starter for the Hurricanes' new AHL affiliate, the Chicago Wolves.
Nedeljkovic had a solid season for the OHL Mississauga IceDogs last year, posting a 15-13-2 record and helping the team enjoy a deep playoff run. At the World Juniors, he was arguably one of Team USA’s best players, finishing the tournament with a .943 save percentage and 1.66 GAA, leading his team to a bronze medal finish. Looking ahead, now that the Hurricanes have locked up Cam Ward to a two-year extension, we expect Nedeljkovic to arrive in the NHL in time for the 2018-19 season and take over as the Hurricanes' No. 1 starter. For now, he will continue to hone his craft in the minors.
