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

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'

— Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock on his interest in advanced statistical analysis
