Winnipeg Jets defensive prospect Zach Redmond has been quietly racking up some hefty accolades. He is a mobile offensive defenceman, who has shown himself as an excellent skater that moves the puck well. He makes good decisions, and he is poised and patient with the puck. When required, Redmond jumps into the play, and possesses a powerful and accurate shot when needed.

Raised in Traverse City, Michigan (about 2 ½ hours north of Grand Rapids), Redmond began his hockey career at age 17 with the USHL’s Sioux Falls Stampede. After spending two years in Sioux Falls, Zach began to turn heads when he made the move to Ferris State University in 2007.

In his freshman year with the Ferris State Bulldogs Redmond racked up 19 points (6 goals, 13 assists) in 37 games. That was enough to get the blueliner noticed by the Atlanta Thrashers who selected him in the seventh round, #184 overall at the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

Redmond went on to complete his four-year career with the Bulldogs, earning a degree in Marketing from Ferris State. Zach served as captain of the Bulldogs in his senior year, notching 20 points (7 goals, 13 assists) in 26 games played. In that 2010-11 season, Redmond was a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award.

Zach made the jump to the professional ranks this season, first captaining Jets rookies at the Young Stars Tournament held in Penticton. Following an impressive pre-season campaign, Redmond was assigned to the St. John’s IceCaps to further his development. One quarter of the way through the AHL season, Redmond leads the team in plus/minus and is just beginning to show his potential.
