Zach Redmond D COL 8 Days

Redmond registered an assist in Thursday's shootout win over the Rangers.

Redmond has assumed a regular role on the Avs' blue line since Brad Stuart sustained a leg injury last week, and has been rather productive on the offensive end, tallying a goal and two assists over his last four games. Unfortunately, he's gone a collective minus-4 over his last two turns, which could remain an issue if the Avs' early-season struggles continue in the games to come.

Redmond will return to the ice on Thursday night against the Maple Leafs to replace the injured Brad Stuart, the Denver Post reports.

Redmond has been scratched the past four games and he has only played in three games this season. Avs coach Patrick Roy said Stuart could miss "weeks", so Redmond should see increased playing time until Stuart returns.

With Ryan Wilson (shoulder) set to miss the next two-to-three weeks, Redmond will see more time on the Avs' third defensive pairing, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.

Redmond has been a healthy scratch for all of the Avs' games this season, after he was brought in by Colorado on a two-year, $1.5 million contract in the offseason. The 26-year-old has showed some offensive ability in the minors with AHL St. John's last season, but he could struggle to offer much production while seeing only light minutes on the occasions he plays.

Redmond will be a roster scratch for Thursday night's opener against the Minnesota Wild.

Redmond's presence on the Avs roster is a bit surprising, but he has the potential to develop into a solid defenseman with a bit of seasoning. Redmond could be considered a very deep roster stash in dynasty leagues, but we would stay away from him for now.

Redmond's suffered a severe cut last year when his leg was sliced by a skate. He had a goal and three points in 10 contests with Winnipeg this season and he's gone on to be one of the AHL St. John's IceCaps' top players in the postseason. The IceCaps are currently battling the Texas Stars in the Calder Cup Final. "It's been great to get back in the flow of things, to be playing and not be thinking about whether you'll be in our out of the lineup or trying to come back from injuries," Redmond said. He's set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer and will presumably be looking for a team that where he'll be given a fair shot to make their NHL opening game roster.

Zach Redmond recorded his first goal of the season in Thursday's loss to Pittsburgh.

It was his first marker since his career was nearly ended because of a severe cut to his leg last year. "They're all special at this point," said Redmond. "I'm still young in my career so scoring a goal at any point... after the injury you can say that's a little bit more special, sure. But second goal in the NHL is going to be cool either way." He has two points in six games with the Jets this campaign.
