An athletic, but “small” stopper based on today’s goaltender size standards, Nedeljkovic nevertheless just stops pucks. Has impressive re exes and quickness that can’t be taught. He moves along the goal line very well, and never loses track of the play. Has good hands as well, using both his blocker and glove to make saves on shots marked for the corners. His quickness and ability to recover is impressive, and he is solid positionally and shows great composure. Very effective puck handler as well, keeping the play moving and even setting up a few decent breakouts for his team each game. He was good on his rebound control and his ability to see through traffic to make the first save almost automatic. Poised and mature beyond his years, a calming influence on the team in front of him. Never gives up and battles until the puck is covered, cleared or it gets by him. One issue to improve upon is his positioning as he can get caught sitting too far back in his crease, leaving a lot of room that NHL shooters will have no problem hitting. (May 2014)
