Winnipeg’s Zach Redmond shows scar from when femoral artery was cut (Picture)


Winnipeg Jets defenseman Zach Redmond is lucky to be alive, and he now has a massive scar to remind him of that on a daily basis. In February, Redmond had his femoral artery slashed by a skate during practice and underwent three-hour emergency surgery. The injury occurred during a practice drill in front of the net, and blood reportedly pooled onto the ice as trainers tended to the 24-year-old.

As you might expect, the laceration required a lot of stitches and staples to close. CBS Sports’ Mitch Peacock shared a photo of Redmonds scar on Friday, and it helps give us an idea of just how horrifying the injury must have been.

A massive scar like this might look a bit more alarming since it’s on a player’s head, but Redmond’s injury was no less dangerous. We’re glad to see he has recovered nicely and was able to avoid any serious long-term damage.
