Defenseman Adam Pardy adds to the overgrowing Winnipeg Jets depth core, signing a one year, $600K contract today.
The Calgary Flames selected Pardy as their sixth round selection, 173rd overall, at the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. Pardy became an unrestricted free agent after the 2010–11 season and signed a two-year, $4 million contract with the Dallas Stars. During the 2011–12 preseason, he suffered a rib injury against the St. Louis Blues. Pardy was in and out of the Stars’ lineup during the season and had three assists in 36 games played.
Pardy played in 17 games with the Buffalo Sabres last year in which he registered four assists and 14 penalty minutes. Pardy also did time in the AHL during the lockout-shortened season, suiting up for 21 games with the Rochester Americans.
