BEST OF MAXIM
The Flyers have used plenty of defensemen this season. With the condensed 48 game schedule – a hellish
marathon of games that seems more like an extended torture session than a
season- it’s easy to assume the Flyers would have injuries. But this much? The egregious amount of
injuries seems too daunting to overcome, but if they do, they can thank all ten
on the squad who...

DON'T NEED THAT
Fighting Evander Kane isn't usually something people enter into lightly, at least not after his one and done knockout of Matt Cooke a couple years ago. He's not only one of the best forwards in the league (and probably the best player on the Winnipeg Jets), he's also got a little temper on him. Alexei Emelin learned the hard way that chirping and antagonizing Kane usually...
Winnipeg Jets defender Zach Redmond is lucky to be alive following having his femoral artery slashed by a skate just over six weeks ago, and even more incredible is that he returned to the ice today. As a reminder of what happened, Zach has a nice little scar which you can check out below.

Scars are just as much a part of hockey as pucks, pads and swear words.
Zach Redmond, who was cut by teammate Antti Miettinen’s skate during a practice at PNC Arena in Raleigh on Feb. 21, has made a “miraculous” recovery, Jets team physician Dr. Peter MacDonald told the Winnipeg Free Press.
And he’s got the cool scar to prove it, as seen below.

Alexei Emelin needs to use better judgement when picking his battles.
The Canadiens defenseman, who was pummeled by Zdeno Chara in a game against the Bruins back on March 3, antagonized Winnipeg’s Evander Kane into a fight Thursday night. Kane didn’t take kindly to the instigating, and he proceeded to rip Emelin’s helmet off, toss it violently to the ice and land several hard...
The Philadelphia Flyers have signed University of Minnesota defenseman Mark Alt to an Entry Level Contract will report to the Adirondack Phantoms of the AHL on an ATO for the remainder of the season.

Winnipeg Jets defenseman Zach Redmond is lucky to be alive, and he now has a massive scar to remind him of that on a daily basis. In February, Redmond had his femoral artery slashed by a skate during practice and underwent three-hour emergency surgery. The injury occurred during a practice drill in front of the net, and blood reportedly pooled onto the ice as trainers tended to the...

Winnipeg Jets defenseman Zach Redmond nearly lost his life when his femoral artery was sliced by a skate, now he's showing off his survival scar.
"It’s nothing short of a miracle considering what’s he’s been through. We’re all aware of what happened. Considering the magnitude of the injury and the insult, not only to the leg but the whole body, it’s quite miraculous."
-Winnipeg Jets head physician Dr. Peter MacDonald regarding Zach Redmond skating today.
