RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Zach Redmond.
Redmond is fully recovered from a nasty leg injury and now looks to get his NHL career back on track. The Jets signed the courageous defender to a one-year deal but he remains a fringe NHL/AHL player.
In 10 AHL games with the St. Johns IceCaps this season, Redmond managed a goal and two assists with an even rating. Redmond is considered a good young prospect for the Jets and he very well may get a chance to shine with the big club while Zach Bogosian continues to recover from wrist surgery. That said, Redmond is an unknown quantity fantasy wise and considering two of his teammates playing the same position can put up all-star numbers (Dustin Byfuglien and Tobias Enstrom) you're probably better off looking elsewhere for a diamond in the rough in this year's draft.
