Nedeljkovic has an interesting background, being from the Cleveland area and choosing to go directly to Canadian junior to develop. He's the go-to goaltender for the Plymouth Whalers, and though he isn't the biggest goaltender, he has good technique and has excellent puck handling.

He's currently the fourth-ranked North American goaltender by Central Scouting.

Scouting Report

Nedeljkovic might not have the prototypical size NHL teams look for but the rest of the game is making them notice. He has a strong, fluid leg push utilizes a tight compact butterfly, the ability to read the play and proactively get into solid position making him hard to beat. - Elite Prospects

A Good Fit in Columbus?

The Ohio connection is obvious, making him a candidate to be a fan favorite as the local boy. As we've mentioned in the recent goaltender profiles though, the Jackets have a handful of promising goaltending prospects and may not be willing to spend a pick on a goaltender as high as a guy like Nedeljkovic should go.
