Jets recall Redmond from St. John's
The Winnipeg Jets recalled defenseman Zach Redmond from the St. John’s IceCaps of the American Hockey League on Sunday.

The Winnipeg Jets recalled defenseman Zach Redmond from the St. John’s IceCaps of the American Hockey League on Sunday. Defensemen Ben Chiarot and Julian Melchiori were reassigned to St. John's.

Redmond, 25, has two points and two penalty minutes in two games with the IceCaps. He made his NHL debut in 2012-13 and appeared in eight games with the Jets (one goal, three assists, 12 PIM) before having surgery to repair the right femoral artery and vein in his leg following a skate cut in practice on Feb. 21.

Redmond has 52 points (17 G, 35 A) and 73 penalty minutes in 115 AHL games between the Chicago Wolves and St. John's. He was selected by the Atlanta Thrashers in the seventh round (No. 184) of the 2008 NHL Draft.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
