It is being reported by both the DMN and ESPN Dallas Monday afternoon that the Dallas Stars have assigned defenseman Adam Pardy to the Texas Stars of the AHL on a conditioning assignment. It has been reported that the duration of the assignment will be two games, and he is expected to rejoin the Stars in Columbus on Thursday.

A conditioning assignment for a player that has (presumably) been healthy is a bit of unusual thing around here. Only Mark Fistric and Toby Petersen have taken conditioning assignments in recent years (in the Texas Stars era of affiliates), both after injuries.

The CBA says:

Conditioning Assignment. Unless a player consents, he shall not be sent to a minor league club for conditioning reasons. Nor shall such conditioning extend for more than 14 consecutive days without the player's consent. The player shall continue, during such period or mutually agreed to extension of such period, to receive the same salary, and be entitled to the same benefits, that he would have received had he continued to play with the Club.

So Adam Pardy had to agree to it. It's possible he requested it to stay sharp and work on his game. He has not seen game action since January 10th. He has played in 22 contests for the Stars this year, notching a single assist and a -8 rating on the year. Waivers are not a part of a conditioning assignment, and unless I'm mistaken (always a good possibility) Pardy will still consume a roster spot in Dallas while he's gone.

The Texas Stars will play at home Tuesday and Wednesday night with both games coming against the Milwaukee Admirals.
