Zach Redmond

Zach Redmond is currently part of the Buffalo Sabres organization, playing for the Rochester Americans in the AHL.  He was drafted 184th overall in the 2008 NHL draft by the Atlanta Thrashers, a draft that produced superstars like Steven Stamkos (1st overall), Drew Doughty (2), Erik Karlsson (15) and Roman Josi (38).  As many hockey fans know, the Atlanta Thrashers had a very, very poor showing the first year they were allowed to draft prospects, having chosen Patrik Stefan, 1st overall.

The Atlanta Thrashers only lasted 11 years in the league, relocating to Winnipeg, where only two of the draft picks that Atlanta had once chosen are now players on the Jets team, Bryan Little and Tobias Enstrom.  As for Zach, he did not remain with the team, going the free agent route, signing with the Colorado Avalanche, then Montreal Canadiens and now finally landing with the Buffalo Sabres.
