WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets recalled defenceman Zach Redmond from the St. John's IceCaps of the American Hockey League on Friday.
Redmond played in 17 games with the IceCaps this season, recording 13 points and 14 penalty minutes. The 25-year-old played in 11 career NHL games, all with the Jets, for four career NHL points and 12 career penalty minutes.
He was originally drafted by the Atlanta Thrashers in the seventh round of the 2008 NHL Draft.
It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
