Hurricanes Select Plymouth Goalie, Alex Nedeljkovic

Alex Nedeljkovic - Jeff Zelevansky

Nedeljkovic was OHL goalie of the year last season

The Carolina Hurricanes stuck to their drafting history when they picked Alex Nedeljkovic, a player from the Plymouth Whalers, in the second round on Saturday.   Obviously, Mike Vellucci, former GM of the Whalers had input into this decision.

Nedeljkovic was the draft's top rated goalie on several scouts' lists, including Craig Button, and was named goalie of the year in the OHL last season.  He was noted as the Whaler's most valuable player as well.

McKeen's Hockey says that the goalie is aggressive, has excellent balance, and has flat out stole games for the Whalers last season.  He also was the starting goalie for Team USA in the U18 World Championships and had a tournament best 1.84 GAA.

We will have more about Nedeljkovic along with interviews later.
