The Winnipeg Jets are pleased to announce they have agreed to terms with defenceman Zach Redmond on a new one-year, two-way contract worth $715,000 at the NHL level.
Redmond, 24, made his NHL debut in 2012-13 when he appeared in eight games with the Winnipeg Jets. During that time, Redmond recorded four points (1G, 3A) and 12 penalty minutes before suffering a significant leg injury which ended his NHL season. He returned to play a pair of games with the IceCaps of the American Hockey League to end the season.
The Houston, TX native has played in 113 career AHL games between Chicago and St. John’s for 50 career points (16G, 34A) and 71 career penalty minutes. He was originally drafted by the Atlanta Thrashers in the seventh round, 184th overall, in the 2008 NHL Draft.Zach Redmond
