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.
He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
