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 pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
— Arizona Coyotes director of amateur scouting Tim Bernhardt regarding the coincidence that six of the organization's top prospects are sons of former NHL players
