In 63 games with the IceCaps, Chiarot, 22, has 17 points (five goals, 12 assists) and 85 penalty minutes. He was a fourth-round selection (No. 120) of the Atlanta Thrashers in the 2009 NHL Draft and appeared in a game with the Jets against the Chicago Blackhawks on Nov. 2, 2013.

Redmond, 25, has 21 points (six goals, 15 assists) in 37 games for St. John's and has played in 11 games with Winnipeg. He was the Thrashers' seventh-round pick (No. 184) in the 2008 draft.

He also played 28 games with the Ontario Reign of the ECHL, where he was twice named CCM ECHL Goaltender of the Week. Hutchinson was taken by the Boston Bruins in the third round (No. 77) of the 2008 draft.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
