- Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun: Jets Zach Redmond had 3 hours of surgery to repair a completely severed femoral artery, and cuts to the femoral and popliteal vein. His season is likely over.
“I’ve been doing this for 12 years and that’s easily the most grave incident I’ve been a part of, for sure,” said Milette. “Surgery went well. There were a lot of blood vessels that needed repair, along with all the surrounding tissue, the muscles. Basically, every main blood vessel in your leg that supplies blood to that lower limb was in trouble. He’s doing well right now and we can only hope his recovery will be as good as the surgery went.”
