Good news following a gory scene in Raleigh, N.C.: the Winnipeg Jets announced that Zach Redmond is resting comfortably after surgery to repair a laceration to his right femoral artery and vein. The procedure took three hours, according to the release (via the Winnipeg Free Press’ Ed Tait).

It probably shouldn’t be too surprising that the team also announced that Redmond is out indefinitely while recovering from that serious cut.

Click here for a detailed explanation of how the injury occurred. (As the post states, he was wearing Kevlar socks, but was cut above that area of protection.)

The 24-year-old defenseman was enjoying his rookie season with the Jets. He scored four points (one goal, three assists) in eight games while average 19:35 minutes per contest.

    Sounds like something out of an episode of CSI.. Hope he can make a full and quick recovery.

    Yeah, I’d be wearing chain mail after the early skate related injuries thus far.
