The Winnipeg Free Press reported Friday that Winnipeg Jets defenseman Zach Redmond will miss the remainder of the season recovering from a skate cut to his right leg sustained during practice Thursday.
Redmond was stepped on a by a teammate, with the player's skate blade cutting into the femoral artery and vein.
"We were trying to get our extra players conditioned, and there was a 1-on-1 battle at the net where he tripped up and landed on his back," Jets coach Claude Noel said. "[Another] player happened to step on him and cut him just above the back of the knee."
I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
