The Pittsburgh Penguins re-signed goaltender Alex Nedeljkovic through the 2025-26 season, the team announced Thursday.

The contract averages a value of $2.5 million for each of the two seasons.

Nedeljkovic, 28, was 18-7-7 in 38 games (33 starts) with a .902 save percentage, 2.97 goals-against average and one shutout in his first season with Pittsburgh. His career-best 10-game point streak made him the 11th goalie in Penguins history to accomplish that feat.

In parts of seven seasons with the Carolina Hurricanes (2016-17, 2018-21), Detroit Red Wings (2021-23) and Penguins, Nedeljkovic is 60-45-22 with a .906 save percentage, 2.96 GAA and eight shutouts in the regular season.

He played in nine Stanley Cup Playoff games, going 4-5-0 with a .920 save percentage and 2.17 GAA for Carolina in the 2020-21 season, when he was a first-team selection to the NHL All-Rookie Team.
