After a mostly poor showing in his first three NHL games this season, Zach Redmond has been re-assigned to the AHL IceCaps. His surprising but brief debut a year ago left many with high hopes for his season, but contract considerations and injury kept him off the NHL roster and off the ice for most of the year.
The move comes after Mark Stuart successfully took part in today's physical practice and was cleared by trainers for the game against Minnesota Saturday afternoon.
Is Redmond's opportunity over?

Thank goodness we only have to play Chicago one more time this year. I don’t know if I can hold up through any more than that. It’s ranting time.

Ondrej Pavelec entered his 5th career game against his new Division rival with 99 career wins and not a single one against Chicago. It's starting to feel like some things never change when it comes the Jets.

The Jets face the Blackhawks just four times this year, and three of those matchups fall in November. The NHL often relies on many games in a short time span to spur rivalry. You play anyone enough in a physical, close quarter, frustrating game like hockey, the logic goes, and you'll learn to hate each other. It's like the playoffs!
I think it's working because I, for one, am starting to really hate these games. Isn't there some team from a place where you can barbeque year-round that has a team for us to play?
