Winnipeg Jets defenseman Zach Redmond underwent three hours of surgery Thursday afternoon after his right femoral artery and a vein were lacerated by an ice skate during a morning practice drill.Redmond, who was cut mid-thigh, was taken to a nearby Raleigh hospital for treatment. Winnipeg is in town to visit the Carolina Hurricanes Thursday night."What took place is we were trying to get our extra players conditioned, there was a 1-on-1 battle at the net and (Redmond) was tripped up, ended up on his back and the player happened to step on him just above the back of the knee," Jets coach Claude Noel told the Winnipeg Sun. "It's a fairly wide cut, so we're taking him to the hospital and we'll see what the diagnosis is when they take a look at him there. He lost a fair bit of blood and he's in some pain. It looks like it's a vein. It's tough on your team."The team released the following statement on the incident:"Zach is currently resting comfortably in recovery and is expected to be out an indefinite period of time.""The Jets would like to recognize the quick actions of the team's training staff and teammates in helping Zach receive the urgent treatment necessary."Redmond is in his rookie season with the Jets and played his collegiate career at Ferris State University.Via USA TODAY
