The Jets have reassigned Zach Redmond to St. John's (AHL).
Redmond, 25, has played in three games with the Jets since his recall on November 3. He will return to the IceCaps where he has played in two games so far this season for two points (1G / 1A) and two penalty minutes. Redmond has played in 115 career AHL games between Chicago and St. John’s for 52 career points (17G / 35A) and 73 career penalty minutes.
The Winnipeg Jets signed defenceman Zach Redmond to a one-year, two-way contract worth $715,000, the club announced Saturday.
The 24-year-old had a goal and three assists in eight games last season for Winnipeg before suffering a leg injury, which ended his NHL season. Redmond required immediate surgery after suffering an accidental skate cut to his right thigh during practice. He returned to play a pair of games with the IceCaps of the American Hockey League to end the season.
#NHLJets recall Zach Redmond from conditioning assignment with St. John's IceCaps. Redmond earned two assists in two games over the weekend.
Like the Karlsson return, this is nothing short of spectacular. Redmond suffered a life-threatning laceration to his leg in practice earlier this season. He expected to miss the rest of the season because of the incident, but he is already back in the NHL. With Zach Bogosian out with a concussion, the door is open for Redmond to get back in the lineup. We'll have to wait and see if it is him, Derek Meech or Jacob Trouba tonight.
