Alex Nedeljkovic Clears Waivers, Heads to Minors

Detroit Red Wings goaltender Alex Nedeljkovic will stay in the organization after clearing waivers. General Manager Steve Yzerman placed Nedeljkovic on waivers Sunday, but no team put in a claim for him by Monday's 2 pm deadline.

Why it matters

  • Nedeljkovic carries a $3 million salary cap hit in the final year of his contract
  • Struggled to prove himself in the NHL this season
  • Lost his backup job to Magnus Hellberg, who was claimed off waivers in November

  • Nedeljkovic's last game with the Wings was on Dec. 8 against the Florida Panthers, resulting in a 5-1 loss
  • 2-4-2 record with a 4.09 goals-against average and .880 save percentage
  • Hellberg's numbers with the Wings: 2-3-0 with a 2.81 GAA and .896 save percentage

The Bottom Line

Nedeljkovic will be assigned to the minors, removing him from the 23-man roster. However, he has stabilized goaltending with the Grand Rapids Griffins in his six games conditioning stint, earning a 3-2-1 record with a 2.30 GAA and .920 save percentage.
