Two of Team USA's five wins at the 2014 IIHF U18 World Championship have been shutouts. The first shutout, a 3-0 win over the Czech Republic, was posted by starting netminder Alex Nedeljkovic, while backup Edwin Minney got the win in a 7-0 victory over Denmark.

So far in this tournament, Nedeljkovic has played in three of the four preliminary round games as well as the first game of the playoff round. He has notched three wins and the lone loss in the opener vs. Switzerland, posting a 2.01 goals-against average at the U18 to go along with a .893 save percentage.

Nedeljkovic has played the past two seasons for the Plymouth Whalers of the OHL. His play this season was particularly strong as he earned the OHL Goaltender of the Year award on the strength of a 2.88 goals-against average and .925 save percentage.

Hockey's Future caught up with Nedeljkovic at the U18 for this HF video interview.
