Redmond was born in Dawson Creek, British Columbia. As a youth, he played in the 1978 Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournament with a minor ice hockey team from the Fraser Valley.
Prior to playing pro hockey, Redmond played junior hockey in the BCJHL, where he finished fourth in scoring as a 16-year old defenseman, setting a record for points by a defenseman. He became an all-WCHA defenceman at the University of Denver as a 17-year-old freshman where he set an all-time school season points record for a defenceman in 1983. He played the following season for the Canadian Olympic Team in 1984..
Redmond was rated as the 4th best prospect by the NHL Central Scouting ratings, and was selected 6th overall in the 1984 NHL draft by the Los Angeles Kings. He signed with Los Angeles and played regularly for two seasons, but a knee injury and inconsistent defensive play led to him being sent to the minors part way through his third season. When he was sent to the minors again in 1987 he refused to report, and was eventually traded to Edmonton. Edmonton also sent him to the minors, and he retired following the season at age 25.
