Zach Redmond collected two assists in Tuesday's overtime victory over Florida.

The helpers represented the first points of his NHL career in his third appearance with the Jets. Redmond is getting a chance to play with Dustin Byfuglien on the sidelines and the fact that he's starting to produce is a good sign for Winnipeg. The 24-year-old blueliner has averaged 20:40 of ice time per match since getting into the lineup.

Zach Redmond is under the impression that he'll be in the lineup on Thursday, but it's unclear if he's playing because of Dustin Byfuglien's questionable status.

"Yeah, I just assume so," said Redmond when asked if he would be getting the chance to play in his first NHL contest. "According to the board I'm in the lineup. I'm definitely really excited, been waiting for it and can't wait." Coach Claude Noel wouldn't clarify his team's lineup following the morning skate.

Zach Redmond is going to make every minute count in hopes of landing a spot on the Jets' opening night roster.

Zach Bogosian is still out while recovering from wrist surgery, so defensemen Paul Postma and Redmond have an increased chance to crack the lineup. "How do I make a favourable impression? It's pretty simple, to be honest," said Redmond. "You've got to show up every day, be positive and work as hard as you possibly can on the ice and in the weight room or wherever it may be that they need you. You have to make an impression that you want to be here and nowhere else. They always have eyes on you. We know that. It's about staying calm and composed and knowing what your job is."

Zach Redmond notched a goal, but St. John's came up just short in its 3-2 loss to Adirondack on Wednesday night.

Redmond isn't very skilled, but he's a smart player with great skating ability. He has 15 points on the season. Spencer Machacek had the other goal.

Zach Redmond scored the only goal for St. John's in its 1-0 win over Albany on Friday night.

Redmond isn't really known for his offensive skill set, but he does have six goals and nine assists on the season. The 24-year-old is probably a bottom-tier NHL defenseman when all is said and done.

Zach Redmond has registered five goals and eight points in 19 games with the St. John's IceCaps so far this season.

He had a great last year as well and this time around he wants to keep it going. "I remember last year, kind of stalling a little bit in the middle, so I need to keep making sure my body and mind are where they need to be and play as consistent as I can for the full season," said the AHL sophomore. "I'm happy with how I'm playing, but there's still work that needs to be done. Offensively, I'll be OK but I'm working on making sure my defense is where it needs to be and hone in on making smart plays, good outlet passes." In his rookie season with the IceCaps in 2011-12, Redmond potted eight goals and posted 31 points in 72 contests. Coach Keith McCambridge has noticed the blueliner's development and he sees him as a "more mature player."
