Pardy (upper body) registered one shot and a plus-1 rating in Sunday's minor-league clash against AHL Texas. Pardy is back to 100 percent and should be available for the Predators to call up if they need some added depth for their postseason run. That said, the blueliner has just nine points in 27 contests with the Admirals, so he'd most likely be utilized for his ability in the defensive third rather than factoring in much on offense.
Pardy sustained an upper-body ailment in Wednesday's AHL game against Charlotte and will be out indefinitely. While fantasy owners shouldn't concern themselves with a veteran who rarely plays in the NHL, this news does serve up a bit of a blow to a Predators organization that has also lost forward Cody Bass for the rest of the season due to a lower-body injury.
Pardy was sent to AHL Milwaukee on Sunday, Adam Vignan of the Tennessean reports. The defenseman hasn't scored a point in four games in the NHL this year, so he wasn't much of a fantasy producer in his limited time in the big league. He has bounced between the minors and the NHL all year, so he could easily end up back in the NHL shortly.
Pardy was recalled from AHL Milwaukee on Monday, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports. The defenseman hasn't done much in the NHL this year, with only one game and no points. He has had seven points in 16 AHL games, but it's tough to say if that production will transfer to the NHL. He isn't a high priority fantasy target in most leagues.
Pardy was sent back to AHL Milwaukee on Sunday. Pardy posted two shots on goal, two penalty minutes, and a plus-1 rating while playing a fill-in role for the Predators while Ryan Ellis was sidelined with an upper-body injury. With Ellis likely returning to the lineup soon, Pardy goes back to the minors for more seasoning.
