EDMONTON – Former Michigan Tech goaltender Angus Redmond was traded from Anaheim to Edmonton on Monday (Feb. 24). Redmond and a conditional seventh-round draft pick in 2022 were swapped for defenseman Joel Persson at the NHL trade deadline.
Redmond has a 13-0 record in 15 games this season with Newfoundland in the ECHL. He will remain with the Growlers after the trade. Redmond holds a .918 save percentage and 2.31 goals-against average this season.
Redmond, a native of Langley, British Columbia, signed a three-year entry-level contract with Anaheim on March 31, 2017 after one season with Michigan Tech. He appeared in 38 games for the Huskies in 2016-17, starting the final 37. He ranked third in the country, and second in the WCHA, with a 1.85 goals-against average. He received the Norbert Matovich Memorial Award as the team's top freshman, was named to the WCHA All-Rookie Team, and his 22 wins set a Michigan Tech record for wins by a freshman goaltender.
Redmond has appeared in 60 ECHL games for seven different teams and two AHL games for the San Diego Gulls. He was called up to the NHL on February 25, 2019 and served a back-up role for the Anaheim Ducks in their game at Vancouver.
