Yzerman makes bold move, waives Alex Nedeljkovic

Red Wings Waive Nedeljkovic

Detroit Red Wings general manager Steve Yzerman has placed goaltender Alex Nedeljkovic on waivers.

Why it matters

Yzerman is known for making calculated moves for the team's long-term success, even if it may seem surprising at first. Nedeljkovic struggled in his appearances this season, with a 2-4-2 record, a 4.09 goals-against average, and a 0.880 save percentage.

  • If Nedeljkovic clears at 2 p.m. Monday, he can be reassigned to Grand Rapids
  • This would clear a roster spot for Filip Zadina, who could be assigned to the Griffins for conditioning after being out since Nov. 5 with a broken leg.
  • Nedeljkovic will be an unrestricted free agent after the season.
