RALEIGH, N.C. - Winnipeg Jets defenceman Zach Redmond suffered a deep cut to his right leg at the end of Thursday's morning skate, was taken by ambulance to a Raleigh-area hospital and underwent successful surgery.

Redmond went under the knife for nearly three hours on Thursday afternoon to repair the laceration to his right femoral artery and vein — which is in the mid-thigh region above the knee.

Through a statement, the Jets said that Redmond “is currently resting comfortably in recovery and is expected to be out for an indefinite period of time.”
