Winnipeg Jets' defenceman Zach Redmond is resting comfortably following surgery to repair a laceration to his right femoral artery and vein suffered during the team's morning skate on Thursday.

Redmond was accidentally cut in the mid-thigh region by a skate during drills at the end of the practice.

The team released a statement saying that Redmond underwent surgery for approximately three hours and will be out indefinitely.

"He lost a lot of blood and was probably on the ice for 10-15 minutes as he was being treated before they took him off," said Brian Munz, play-by-play commentator for the Jets on TSN Radio 1290.

"The Jets and Hurricanes medical staff reacted quickly, along with the coaching staff and players present. They kept him as calm and as stable as possible."

Jets head coach Claude Noel said it was a "fairly wide cut," but Redmond was coherent.

"These things happen," he told a scrum after practice. "We were trying to get our extra players conditioned and it was a one-one-one battle at the net where (Redmond) tripped up and landed on his back and a player happened to step on him.

The Jets beat the Hurricanes 4-3 later on Thursday.
