The 24-year-old Redmond, a native of Houston, Texas drafted out of Michigan’s Ferris State University, has played eight games in his rookie season with the Jets. He has scored one goal, three assists and taken 12 minutes in penalties.
“These things happen,” Jets coach Claude Noel told Alexander of newsobserver.com. “We were trying to get our extra players conditioned and it was a one-one-one battle at the net where (Redmond) tripped up and landed on his back and a player happened to step on him.
“He cut him just above the back of the knee. It’s a fairly wide cut and he’ll need to be taken to the hospital. He lost a fair amount of blood quickly. It looks like it was a vein. They got it tied up and pressure on it, but he’ll be fine.”
