Winnipeg Jets LogoWinnipeg Jets defenceman Zach Redmond is out indefinitely after undergoing surgery Thursday on his right femoral artery and vein.

Redmond was in Raleigh, North Carolina practicing for tonight’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes when he suffered an accidental cut from a skate during drills at the end of practice.

A Jets spokesperson says Redmond is currently resting comfortably in recovery after a three-hour surgery at a Raleigh area hospital.

“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,” the team said in a statement.
