Zach Redmond has done a great job of bouncing back after suffering a career-threatening leg injury less than a year and a half ago.

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.

Zach Redmond could be heading to the minors soon.

Coach Paul Maurice wants Redmond to get into some games since he isn't playing for the Jets. However, the move probably won't come until closer to the Olympic break. Redmond has played in three games this season with Winnipeg and he hasn't played since Nov. 21.

Zach Redmond was recalled from St. John's of the AHL Friday.

He was needed due to the shift of Dustin Byfuglien from defense to forward. Redmond will likely be used as a seventh defenseman to start. However, given the weak third unit of the Jets featuring Keaton Ellerby and Adam Pardy, we wouldn't be surprised if Redmond cracked the top six should Buff stick as a forward.

Zach Redmond has been sent down to the minors.

Redmond has no points in three games with Winnipeg this season. The 25-year-old defenseman has demonstrated some offensive abilities at the AHL level, but he isn't expected to have any fantasy value in standard fantasy leagues this season.
