NHL Winnipeg Jets’ Redmond Needs Surgery to Repair Skate Wound

Feb. 22 (Bloomberg) -- Winnipeg Jets defenseman Zach Redmond had surgery to repair his femoral artery after it was cut when a teammate accidentally stepped on him during practice, the National Hockey League team said.

Redmond, 24, underwent three hours of surgery in Raleigh, North Carolina, to repair the damage to his right femoral artery and vein. The Jets won 4-3 last night at the Carolina Hurricanes.

Redmond tripped and fell onto his back before a teammate’s skate caused the mid-thigh wound, the team said in an e-mailed release, adding that he would be out indefinitely.

Redmond has one goal, three assists and 12 penalty minutes in eight games this season.
