Philadelphia — The Winnipeg Jets have dipped into their system to find a replacement for Zach Redmond.

The team announced today they have recalled defenceman Julian Melchiori from the St. John’s IceCaps of the American Hockey League.

Redmond, who is recovering from surgery on his leg to repair the femoral artery that was cut by a teammate’s skate, will be out indefinitely.
