The Winnipeg Jets signed defenceman Zach Redmond to a one-year, two-way contract worth $715,000, the club announced Saturday.

The 24-year-old had a goal and three assists in eight games last season for Winnipeg before suffering a leg injury, which ended his NHL season. Redmond required immediate surgery after suffering an accidental skate cut to his right thigh during practice.
