|Assets:||Keeps things reasonably simple in the defensive zone. Has the size NHL teams lust over from the blueline position. Moves fairly well for a big guy (6-4, 220 pounds).|
|Flaws:||Doesn't use his 6-4 frame enough to make a physical impact, which hinders his overall performance. Has improved but still has puck-handling limitations in the offensive zone.|
|Career Potential:||Veteran depth defenseman.|

Pardy now in top four on Sabres' blueline | 04/13/2013 9:29 AM
NewsWith trades and injuries, Adam Pardy who started the season as the Sabres' ninth defenseman, is now playing in the top four.
ImpactThats' not a good thing if you are a Buffalo supporter. The trades of Jordan Leopold, T.J. Brennan and Robyn Regehr and the injuries to Tyler Myers and Andrew Sulzer have elevated Pardy on the Sabres' depth chart. It won't be pretty in chicken wing town for the last two weeks of the season.
Sabres recall blueliner Adam Pardy | 04/02/2013 7:47 AM
NewsAdam Pardy has been brought up by the Sabres.
ImpactThe trade that sent Robyn Regehr to Los Angeles on Monday night opened up a spot for Pardy. He has suited up in only five NHL games so far this campaign, but with six defensemen on the roster Pardy should get more action.
Adam Pardy scratched again | 03/09/2013 8:19 AM
NewsDon't expect Adam Pardy to get a great deal of playing opportunities.
ImpactHe was once again a healthy scratch Thursday against New Jersey and seems to be at best a 7th defenseman option for Buffalo coach Ron Rolston. Pardy shouldn't be a roster consideration in any hockey pool.
Pardy to stick around for awhile this time | 02/26/2013 9:05 AM
NewsAdam Pardy is expected to play Tuesday night and to be with the up with the Sabres for the foreseeable future.
ImpactHis only other game of the season came on Feb. 5 against Ottawa when he had an assist and two shots in 18:25 of ice time. Pardy had to return to the minors once Christian Ehrhoff was able to return to the fold, but now he's back up with the team with Alexander Sulzer on injured reserve and Jordan Leopold not practicing.

ImpactPardy has five points and eight penalty minutes in 11 games this season. He made his Buffalo Sabres debut on Feb. 5.
Adam Pardy sent back to AHL | 02/08/2013 8:35 PM
NewsAdam Pardy was sent back to the AHL on Friday.
ImpactHe had been called up to provide insurance to a banged-up bluelined. Pardy had an assist and two penalty minutes in the only game he played in. Jordan Leopold and Tyler Myers, who has a league-worst minus-nine rating, have struggled this year, so Pardy could be back soon if the Sabres want to send a message.
Adam Pardy a healthy scratch Thursday night | 02/08/2013 9:39 AM
NewsAdam Pardy was a healthy scratch Thursday night against the Canadiens.
ImpactPardy sat despite a successful debut Tuesday and his ice time could be further limited by the impending returns of Andrej Sekera (lower body) and Robin Regehr (lower body). Until he garners a regular shift, he should be left on the waiver wire in almost all formats.
Adam Pardy has strong night in Buffalo debut | 02/06/2013 11:07 AM
NewsAdam Pardy enjoyed a successful Buffalo debut Tuesday night.
ImpactHe picked up an assist, two shots, two penalty minutes, three hits and two blocked shots during his 18:25 of ice time. Pardy is the middle of a crowded mix on Buffalo's blueline so his roster spot isn't secure, but nights like that should go a long way to helping him earn some recognition.
Adam Pardy will make Sabres debut Tuesday | 02/05/2013 5:20 PM
NewsAdam Pardy will make his Buffalo Sabres debut on Tuesday.
ImpactPardy had a goal and three assists in five AHL games. He will play alongside Tyler Myers. "Two big guys out there, so hopefully we can cover a lot of ice and just shut down defensively and get the job done," Pardy, who is 6-foot-4 but still significantly shorter than Myers, said. "It was nice to play those games down there and just play a lot of minutes and play a lot of situations. It's really helped to get that mental stability back to be able to come back and play a game."
Sabres recall defenseman Adam Pardy | 02/05/2013 9:18 AM
NewsAdam Pardy has been recalled by the Buffalo Sabres.
ImpactHe was brought up on Monday and could be in the lineup for Tuesday's match in Ottawa. It's not clear who he might be replacing, but there's speculation that it could be Christian Ehrhoff after he missed Monday's practice. Pardy recorded one goal, three points and a plus-3 rating in five games with Rochester after he was sent down to the minors following training camp.
Buffalo waives Adam Pardy | 01/17/2013 1:49 PM
NewsAdam Pardy has been waived by the Buffalo Sabres.
Bob McKenzie on Twitter
ImpactPardy had three points in 36 AHL games in 2011-12. He comes with a $2 million cap hit, so he probably won't be claimed.
