Winnipeg Jets sign defenceman Zach Redmond to one-year contract

WINNIPEG - 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.

The Texas native was originally drafted by the Atlanta Thrashers in the seventh round, 184th overall, in the 2008 NHL Draft.

Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
