|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.|

I can't keep thinking about this,' so I kind of just put it out of my head," he said. "Once the season is over we'll approach that when it comes. Right now it's about hockey. We were in a playoff push and nothing else mattered." Pardy has five assists in 58 games this season and he's averaged 14:13 of ice time per contest.

"That was a first. They're into it, that's a good thing, I guess." The hit came from Chicago's Brandon Bollig. Pardy doesn't have any fantasy value.

"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."
