Redmond signed a two-year, $1.25 million contract with the Canadiens on Friday. Redmond drew into 37 games with the Avalanche last season, tallying six points and 22 shots on goal with a plus-5 rating over that span. The 27-year-old will compete for a bottom-pairing role with the Habs in training camp, but will likely be in and out of the lineup throughout the 2016-17 campaign as a depth defender.
Redmond (lower body) will be in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Ducks, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports. Redmond missed practice Tuesday with a lower-body ailment, but was never in serious danger of missing Wednesday's matchup with Anaheim. Fantasy owners don't need to concern themselves with the former seventh-round pick's availability, however, as he's only notched four points (one goal, three assists) in 29 games this season.
Redmond missed Tuesday's practice due to a lower body injury, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports. Redmond is expected to be in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Ducks to replace an injured Chris Bigras (head). Redmond suited up for Monday's game against the Coyotes for the first time in a month after being a healthy scratch for 13 consecutive games.
Redmond was recalled from AHL San Antonio on Thursday, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports. Redmond won't play in Thursday's game against the Bruins, but will serve as the team's seventh defenseman on the road trip. The 27-year-old has collected seven points and posted a plus-6 rating through 11 games with AHL San Antonio this season, and will look to tally his first point at the NHL level this season should he draw into one of the games on the road trip.
Zach Redmond has been sent to AHL San Antonio, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
