Redmond's rescuers to receive honour

  • Print

St. John Ambulance will honour the members of the Winnipeg Jets who helped save the life of defenceman Zach Redmond after he suffered a severe cut from a skate during a practice in February.

Player Anthony Peluso, assistant coach Perry Pearn and members of the Jets' training staff will be honoured at the residence of Lt-Gov. Philip Lee on May 28. Their quick response to stop the gushing flow of blood helped prevent a worse fate for Redmond.

They will be honoured along with other Manitobans who performed acts of heroism in the past year to save lives.

Redmond, 24, required surgery to repair damage to his femoral artery and the nerves and tendons in his right leg. He's been back on the ice for about two weeks in Winnipeg.

The Jets announced Wednesday they have decided to put Redmond into action by sending him on a conditioning stint to the AHL. Redmond will join the St. John's IceCaps for their final three regular-season games.
