Detroit Red Wings Middle-of-the-Pack in Atlantic Division Goaltending | DHN+

The Alex Nedeljkovic-Thomas Greiss combination should be able to hold their own in Atlantic Division competition

When the Detroit Red Wings acquired Alex Nedeljkovic, they hoped they had landed a goalie to play now and in the future. Nedeljkovic is only 25 and was a Rookie of the Year Finalist. He also won an American Hockey League championship.

But how much does that improve Detroit’s goaltending? It’s hard to know because Nedeljkovich’s sample size is small at the NHL level.

Here is our ranking of Atlantic Division goaltending:

1.Andrei Vasilevskiy, Tampa Bay Lightning

He’s the NHL’s best goalie. Size. Athleticism. Consistency. Composure. Big-game Mentality. Vasilevskiy has all of the attributes you want in a No. 1 goalie.

2. Carey Price, Montreal Canadiens

Price played a significant role in Montreal’s march to the Stanley Cup Final this season. He’s not as dominant as he once was, but he still has an aura. He can get into an opponent’s head.
